Host Renee Montagne talks to Gerald Grunska, co-author of the biography, "Hack," the story of one of Major League Baseball's great hitters, Hack Wilson. In 1930, Wilson set two records that still stand today: the National League home run record of 56 in one season; and the RBI record of 190 in one season. Wilson, who played for the Chicago Cubs, was small for such a powerful hitter.
