About the Chicago Cubs
Chicago Cubs Tickets
Chicago is home to one of the most loved and respected MLB franchises of all time.
The Former White Sox?
The Chicago Cubs are a piece of MLB history, having been around since nearly the league’s inception. Funny enough, when the Cubbies joined the MLB back in 1876, their official name was the Chicago White Stockings. (Something true Cubs fans like to forget.) They didn’t get renamed the Cubs until 1903, as much to differentiate themselves from their newly-formed interleague rivals as to stand on the merits of their own accomplishments.
And let’s not forget, the Cubs have a huge list of accomplishments pretty much from day one. Their 1906 season saw them win an incredible 116 games, making it all the way to the World Series before the White Sox shot them down. The Cubbies got their revenge, though, as World Series champs in both 1907 and in 1908. These wins made them the first team to not only play three World Series in a row but the first to win it twice.
A Long Drought
Despite their early successes — setting records that stand to this day in the MLB — the North Siders wouldn’t have endless good luck. Though they would take the pennant regularly in three-year intervals for a while, their luck seemed to run out in 1945. They took the pennant again that year but ultimately failed to win the World Series.
The end of the 1945 season began what has become another one for the record books — one of the longest droughts in pro sports history. The struggle was real, and the Cubbies would go another 71 years before winning another pennant. Even worse, it would be an astonishing 108 years before their next World Series championship win. Talk about a long wait!
Breaking the Curse
Everything changed for the Cubs in 2016. Chicago broke their National League Championship Series drought when they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers for a shot at the World Series — and they finally snapped that curse right in half when the Cubbies took the championship from the Cleveland Indians that year.
The Cubs of today are driven to keep up the good work. The 2017 season saw them matched up with the Dodgers for the NLCS again, though LA took Chicago down this time around. In the following year, the Cubbies lost to the Colorado Rockies for the wild card spot, but their spirits aren’t broken. This Chicago team didn’t give up after 108 years, and they won’t now.
