The 1909 Chicago Cubs won 104 games but finished second in the National League, behind the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Cubs had won the pennant the previous three years and would win it again in 1910.

The legendary infield of Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, Frank Chance, and Harry Steinfeldt was still intact, but it was the pitching staff that excelled. The Cubs pitchers had a collective earned run average of 1.75, a microscopic figure even for the dead-ball era. Three Finger Brown was one of the top two pitchers in the league (with Christy Mathewson) again, going 27-9 with a 1.31 ERA.
