On December 21, 1960, Chicago Cubs owner Phil Wrigley announces that the team will use a rotating "College of Coaches," who will take turns managing the ballclub. The original eight coaches include Charlie Grimm, Rip Collins, and Rube Walker. Before the season is over, Alvin Dark, Charlie Metro, and Buck O’ Neil will also take turns leading the team. The results will be disastrous for the Cubs, who will finish the season 35 games out of first place.
