    The 1930 Chicago Cubs season was the 58th season of the Chicago Cubs franchise, the 55th in the National League and the 15th at Wrigley Field. The Cubs finished second in the National League with a record of 90–64. In the peak year of the lively ball era, the Cubs scored 998 runs, third most in the majors. Future Hall of Famers Kiki Cuyler, Gabby Hartnett, and Hack Wilson led the offense.

    Regular season

    Hack Wilson set a major league for most RBIs in one season with 191.[1] Wilson's 1930 season was considered one of the best ever by a hitter. In addition to hitting 56 home runs, leading the league with 105 walks, and boasting a batting average of .356, he drove in 191 runs, a mark that remains one of the most untouchable MLB records. (For years, record books gave the total as 190, until research in 1999 showed that an RBI credited by an official scorer to Charlie Grimm actually belonged to Wilson.) He recorded that total without hitting a grand slam.
