Tammy Lechner

Despite the bold assertion in the accompanying photo, author/photojournalist Tammy Lechner should've titled her book Chicago Cubs: Big, Fat Losers. Rather, she chose the high road in her new Our Team, Our Dream: A Cubs Fan's Journey Into Baseball's Greatest Romance -- described as a "passionate photo documentary highlighting 15 seasons with the Chicago Cubs." Fifteen years? Ouch. The gal can play through pain, we'll give her that. A number of the pictures in the book were taken in Arizona during spring training.
