Today is the 18th anniversary of Kerry Wood's incredible twenty strikeout performance against the Houston Astros in 1998.

Video Description: As the Cubs celebrate Wrigley FIeld's 100th anniversary, WGN-TV Producer Marc Brady talks about what makes Wrigley special for him, specifically Kerry Wood's 20 Strikeout game.

Video Description: Houston Astros 0 at Chicago Cubs 2, F -- The most dominating pitching performance of the 1998 season wasn't turned in by one of the usual suspects. No, it wasn't Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez or Roger Clemens who blew up on May 6th with a phenomenal 20-strikeout, one-hit gem; it was a 20-year old neophyte by the name of Kerry Wood who went from a promising Cubs rookie to a household name in a matter of hours.
