1000 Words: Tinker’s family on hand for first decade-themed celebration
Friday marks the first of the decade-themed celebrations going on at Wrigley Field this season, and everything 1910’s will be on display. Fans attending the game will receive a limited-edition Joe Tinker bobblehead, while three generations of the Hall of Fame shortstop’s family will be on hand to conduct the seventh-inning stretch.
Tinker spent 15 seasons with the organization, from 1902-16. He won two World Series titles with the club in 1907 and 1908, and his middle-infield partnership with Johnny Evers is viewed as one of the best in the organization’s history.
