Chili Dog MVP Book Reviews

“Chili Dog MVP even reminded me of facts about my own career”

Never had I witnessed such fan fervor as when Dick Allen came to bat. This resulted in his exclusive walk-up, “Jesus Christ, Superstar,”  my first song to editorialize a players performance. 

Life behind my keyboard was glorious.

Life behind the scenes, I learned…not so much.

The “Chil Dog MVP’s” authors’ forensic-style of  research, involving a vast array of sources and checking long-forgotten information, captured Chicago history with its societal and political upheaval — tumultuous and even tragic personal moments that shaped attitudes of the media, fans and Dick Allen.

The book provides the reader with a  clear understanding of  the big picture surrounding all of us and this once-in-a-generation superstar.

Wow, “Chili Dog MVP” even reminded me of facts about my own career that over the years had escaped my memory.

~ Legendary White Sox Organist Nancy Faust

The Chicago Baseball Museum is presenting classic interviews from the archives of CBM historian George Castle’s “Diamond Gems” syndicated weekly baseball radio show, which aired from 1994 to 2010.

This edition features a 2007 interview with all-time White Sox organist Nancy Faust, on the 30th anniversary of her inauguration of “Na, Na, Na, Hey, Hey, Hey, Good-bye” as a kind of team anthem when opposing teams pulled their pitchers. Faust began playing the 1969 Steam one-hit wonder during a July 29-31, 1977 showdown series with the Kansas City Royals at old Comiskey Park.
