TitleBook Seeks to Restore Cub's Great Jewish Heritage
AbstractA new book entitled Johnny Kling: A Baseball Biography by Gil Bogen has recently been published. The author contends that Kling was Jewish although Kling's wife Lillian asserted he was not. Kling was a catcher for the Chicago Cubs from 1900-1911. He owned the Dixon Hotel in Kansas City and the Strand in Chillicothe, Missouri. He was also a professional billiards player as well as part owner of the Kansas City Blues baseball team.
