Born on this day in 1947 - Steve (Steven Michael) Stone was an outstanding pitcher for the Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, Chicago White Sox and the Baltimore Orioles. Steve pitched in the World Series in 1979, won the Cy Young Award in 1980 and was chosen an "all-star" in 1980. Steve was a sportscaster for the Cubs for many years, with Harry Caray (shown above), Tom Brenneman and later with Chip Caray (Harry Caray's grandson). Steve's analysis and commentary was always interesting, informative, colorful, straight-forward and accurate. Warmest regards on your birthday, Steve -- Cub Fans everywhere miss you very, very much.
