The history of autographs goes back to 3100 BC. The history of kids getting autographs from baseball players goes back to the beginnings of the game. In the past 25 years, autographs or "graphing" has become a hobby for more than 10 million people and a multi-billion dollar business. On this show, we have an expert at getting Chicago Cubs autographs and you will be surprised at what it takes to get the best autographs - hard work and time. David Truitt shares great stories and tips for getting autographs for your collection. If you are going to Cubs Spring Training, this is a must listen.
What do you get when you combine former Cubs Randy Hundley, Ray Burris and Joe Pepitone? Total chaos! If you had the opportunity to be at the party at Club 400 with these three former Cubs, you know (but will want to hear it again). If you missed it, we have the uncensored Q & A for you on Club 400 Podcast. These three guys whose collective careers spanned from 1966-1979 share stories (some never heard before) of the Cubs in the 1960's and 1970's. It is the stories that make the game so great!
On Club 400 Podcast, we have four attendees from Randy Hundley's Cubs Fantasy Camp. We have three veterans and one rookie to break down the experience of a lifetime. Mike Gomoll is a three time participant, the brothers McVicar are 2018 alumni and Eric Hartmann is the rookie, who just returned from camp. If you are 40 or older, this is a bucket list - opportunity of a lifetime. If you can swing it, you will want to consider after hearing this show.
This show has a little bit of everything as the boys discuss upcoming Club 400 events, the Cubs Convention, and much more. Make sure you have a #2 pencil to jot down some details, because baseball is back and Club 400 is the place to be for the 2019 season!
Ronnie "Woo Woo" Wickers (born October 31, 1941) is a longtime Chicago Cubs fan and local celebrity in the Chicago area. He is known to Wrigley Field visitors for his idiosyncratic cheers at baseball games, generally punctuated with an exclamatory "Woo!" (e.g., "Cubs, woo! Cubs, woo! Big-Z, woo! Zambrano, woo! Cubs, woo!") Longtime Cubs announcer Harry Caray dubbed Wickers "Leather Lungs" for his ability to shout for hours at a time.
Tonight, Club 400 releases our last podcast of the year. It’s a special one because our guest is special! A unique, kind and loving person with a unique story. A gift/talent not found until later in his life.
He eventually found his calling at the age of 29 and has since skyrocketed to the top. He’s humble and cares about others and is not afraid to admit he is not a perfect individual - he is just like you and me.
Although, we all try to portray we are perfect, John discusses inner, outer scars and flaws. Instead of hiding these issues he shares them to help others. All he really wants to do is make a difference in people lives.
We love this guy! We really do. We don’t hang out often but when we see him we just want to give him a big hug and tell him we love him.
Our goal is to get him back this year at Club 400! Ladies and gentlemen one of the best John Vincent
Here is a show about a classic Cubs fan, who until recently used a flip phone. Now he creates video recaps after all the games and nearly 3,000 people get to enjoy his heart, soul and passion for the Cubbies. If you ever question his fandom, check out the tattoo on his left hand. Neal is one of the nicest guys you will meet and is sure to put a smile on your face.
He is the first to ask a question, he was Miguel Montero's ring bearer, he takes the best You Tube videos at every event, he is an esteemed member of Club 400 - let us introduce to the world - Paul Dzien aka Crawly. There are so many paths we could have gone down with Crawly, but we chose to discuss the Cubs Convention. If you are new to the Cubs Convention, Crawly explains how to make the most of your experience.
Miguel Montero was the quintessential Chicago Cub. Acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2015, he appeared to be the all-star catcher the Cubbies were missing. Then along came Willson Contreras. During the 2017 season, Miguel was shipped to the Toronto Blue Jays. Guess what that makes him? A 2016 World Champion. Miggy was recently a guest at Club 400 and a guest on Chicago Cubs Club 400 Podcast. You will find him to be authentic, honest, funny, emotional but most of all appreciative of the love he received at Wrigley Field or anytime he was in Chicago. This podcast is a little over an hour, but worth every minute of it.
Wes Jameson grew up a Cubs fan thanks to WGN. As he became older, he realized he wasn't the only one. Eventually, he started a facebook group called "Cubs Fans in Oklahoma". Today there are more than 3,600 members of the group. Wes and the Cubs Fans in Oklahoma have organized Cubs viewing parties, fundraisers and this year will be hosting a party during opening weekend in Arlington, Texas. Wes is famous in Club 400 circles as he created the motto "Cubs Fans Helping Cubs Fans".
