World Series & Wrigley Field

The World Series is the annual championship series of Major League Baseball, played between the American League and National League champions since 1903. The winner of the World Series Championship is determined through a best-of-seven playoff and awarded the Commissioner's Trophy. Wrigley Field is a baseball stadium in Chicago, Illinois, United States that has served as the home ballpark of the Chicago Cubs since 1916. It was built in 1914 as Weeghman Park for the Chicago Federal League baseball team, the Chicago Whales. 5.0/5

Today's Highlight in History: On Oct. 1, 1964, the Free Speech Movement began at the University of California, Berkeley, as students spontaneously protested the arrest of Berkeley alumnus Jack Weinberg, who'd refused to identify himself to campus police as he sat behind a table promoting the Congress of Racial Equality. On this date: In 1885, special delivery mail service began in the United States. In 1908, Henry Ford introduced his Model T automobile to the market.

I'm gonna get a lot of angry responses to this from Cubs fans. But you know what? If you really have beef with anything I'm about to say, bring it on. Cubs fans gotta get their collective act together. I used to love going to games at Wrigley Field. The history, the ivy, the bricks, the urinal troughs, Sammy Sosa, Kerry Wood. But as I’ve gotten older, it’s become harder and harder to put up with having to interact with the average Cubs fan at games. And this isn’t just me talking. I know diehard Cubs fans who have personally told me that they classify their own fan base as the worst in baseball. Not for lack of loyalty, obviously. God knows they should all be commended for loyally sticking with a team that hasn’t won a championship in over 100 years; a team that hasn’t made it to a World Series in nearly 70 years; a team that shows no signs of being anything other than the perennial bottom feeder in the NL Central now that the Houston Astros are in the American League. No, the reason why it’s ...

In 1914 the Chicago Cubs moved into Wrigley Field. Since moving into the ” Friendly Confines ” the Cubs have only won one playoff series. Losing the World Series six times from 1918-1945. The first playoff series to be won in Wrigley didn’t happen until 2003, when the Cubs defeated the Atlanta Brave…
I just asked the guy at Wrigley Field when were up there 2 weeks ago if they had any World Series shirts for sale and he said they did not have any.
The Cubs last World Series win - 104 years ago. The age of Wrigley Field - 100 years. Why are they still playing in that urine soaked park?
WRIGLEY FIELD AT 100 & THE GOAT! Usher Olaf Logan, left, stops William Sianis, owner of the Billy Goat Tavern at 1855 W. Madison Street, from entering Wrigley Field on Oct. 12, 1945. {the last time the Cubs were in the World Series} Sianis crashed the gate but could not seat the goat in the box. This resulted in Sianis angrily stating "you'll never go to another World Series!" A statement that has come true, and is known as "The Curse of the Cubs!" Most people, myself included, believe that inept management is really the reason.
Happy 100th birthday to Wrigley Field! Maybe in the next 100 years I'll see a World Series Championship trophy hoisted in the Friendly Confines. I love teasing myself like that!!! Wait til next year!!!

So the Cubs ignore Sammy Sosa during their Wrigley Field 100th birthday- he did not get an invite from Cubbie brass-, but have Ryan Dempster showing off the World Series ring he won.with the Red Sox.
Here's one for Cameron Holbrook: April 23, 1914: The first baseball game is played at newly constructed Weeghman Park, home to the Federal League's Chi-Feds. The visiting team that day was the Kansas City Packers. By the end of 1915, the Federal League folded, and the Wrigley Family bought the park and moved the Cubs there, naming it Cubs Park. In 1926, it was renamed Wrigley Field. It has been home to many memorable players, such as Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Ron Santo and Fergie Jenkins. Ryne Sandberg, Andre Dawson and Greg Maddux called Wrigley home as well. Babe Ruth's called shot to Sammy Sosa's 3rd consecutive 60 home-run season to Maddux's 3,000th strikeout, and who could forget Harry Caray singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"? Wrigley has seen it all - with the exception of a World Series banner. No matter - the Friendly Confines, the oldest park in the National League is a true gem for Cubs fans, and many baseball fans in general. Happy 100th Birthday Wrigley Field! Go Cubs!
Happy 100th Birthday to Wrigley Field. The day you celebrate your first ever World Series will be the greatest day of my life.
Who says there aren't things to celebrate at Wrigley Field over the past 100 years? There's Babe Ruth's called Home Run against Charlie Root in the 1932 World Series, Mike Schmidt's four Home Run performance on April 17, 1976, Slip and Slide Water Park on August 8, 1988, and Steve Bartman's E-10 on October 14, 2003. Anything else?
Something to think about. Wrigley Field - home to the Chicago Cubs - celebrates its 100th birthday this year. So many fans love this ballpark. However, the Cubs have never won a World Series in the 100 years playing in this park. Time for a new venue???
I am a Cubs fan and as most of you all know, Wrigley Field is celebrating it's 100th birthday this month. I'm having a hard time paying tribute to a baseball field that in a century has yet to win a World Series. Wrigley Field is 100 years old, last Cubs World Series win was 106 years ago. Maybe we should burn it down instead of celebrating it. LOL.
Someone bought me a Jigsaw Puzzle of the History of Cubs baseball and Wrigley Field, but I couldn't finish it. It didn't have the pieces for their World Series banners
There's a special feeling about Opening Day at Wrigley Field! 100 year anniversary too. I've been to a couple of them myself! So many memories there! There have been World Series there in 32' and 45', just no Cub winners. So many great players including Chicago Bears players, who called Wrigley home for decades. I really hope Chicago lets Cubs owners do what they want around the park and in the park. A underground parking lot and Hotel would be super cool. The Owners are trying to do good things. They built the best Spring Training facility ever seen. They have the 2nd best farm system in baseball, getting ready for winning teams very soon! I just love the Cubs and everything about them. A love affair going on 28 years now and will to the day I die. The only thing I still have not done is hug the ivory and run the bases and do a grass angel in the outfield! I think that would be my number 1 if I have a bucket wish list some day. Yeah, this is a special team and a Special Day!!!
Happy 100 years, Wrigley Field! No offense, but ah, maybe the Cubs need a new home to ever win a World Series again.
Happy 100th birthday to Wrigley Field. Hopefully in this next 100 years we can see a World Series trophy in Chicago. That's a maybe

Wrigley Field. The 1935 World Series featured the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago Cubs, with the Tigers winning in six games. The Tigers won despite losing the services of first baseman Hank Greenberg. The Cubs had won 21 consecutive games in September (still a record as of 2013), eventually taking the National League pennant by four games over the defending World Series champions, the St. Louis Cardinals.

The road to the World Series goes through Wrigley Field this year.
Lifelong Chicago Cubs fan and former Buckley and Loda resident Louie Reinhart is gearing up for the game of his life on Friday, April 4, the Cubs’ home opener. The 100-year-old Reinhart — who played baseball for many years as a student at Villa Grove High School (class of 1932) and also as a young man for several teams including for St. Mary Church, Pesotum and Tuscola — won’t need to don “the tools of ignorance,” a reference to the catcher’s mask and chest protector. At this game, he will need only a warm coat, gloves and his Cubs cap as he delivers the game ball to the mound in honor of his 100th birthday and the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field. When asked recently about the Chicago Northsiders’ World Series drought, he answered with his typical smile: “They better hurry up. I’ve waited long enough.” Reinhart, who turned 100 on March 18, was recently honored at two celebrations — one at his church, St. Joseph Catholic Church in Loda, and the other at an open house in his honor ...
Well, it's going to be another long, hot, miserably disappointing season for all you Chicago Cub fans out there in dream land. Nothing is going to change, it never does. It has been the same every year for the past 100, with you folks wasting all that summertime effort and gas, taking time off from work to drive back and forth to Wrigley Field, just to sit in those uncomfortable bleacher seats in that blistering heat with tears running down your cheeks, drinking warm beer and making excuses. Then, the next day having to come up with some viable cover story to tell your boss as to why you are sunburned when you were supposed to be home sick. Even worse, it’s really too bad the club finally put up those stadium lights. Now all that expensive electricity gets wasted just so the Cubs can lose night games too. As we humble Cardinal fans move into the race for the World Series this fall, we will pat you all on the back, reminding you to keep your chin up. Then step back, take a deep breath and suffer through ...

“Wrigley Field > Turner Field. . Yet Braves have won more World Series at Turner then the Cubs at Wrigley
On this day in 1926, a Chicago Tribune article detailed the business side of the team. There, the Cubs casually revealed that Weeghman Park would now be known as Wrigley Field, reflecting the ownership of the club by William Wrigley, Jr. Here's the ol' ballpark in 1945, on the eve of Game 7 in the World Series.
It also means the Cubs have never won a World Series while playing in Wrigley Field.
Someone should put a spire on Wrigley Field so we can say we won the World Series.
Okay... 2012: I tour Fenway Park. 2013: Red Sox win the World Series. Following this logic... 2013: I tour Wrigley Field. 2014: Cubs win the World Series?! What do you think, Andrew Krause?
CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN! The Chicago Cubs have won their 4th World Series champianship in a row! Unbelievable! Final score 14 to 2, Josh Gilbert hit 6 Home Runs in the World Series, and is named World Series MVP! Wrigley Field is rocking and so is the city. Thank you so much for a great Chicago Cubs baseball season, I'll be out on Bat patrol tomorrow night Halloween, Happy Halloween! Cubs fans!

The Holy Grail in MLB remains the winning a World Series in Wrigley Field.
Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox and the city of Boston thank you for beating the team I hate the St. Louis Cardinals! Whoo hoo! Now Next year that World Series title will come to Wrigley Field! My Favorite Team The Chicago Cubs!
95 years since Fenway has seen the Red Sox clinch a World Series, that's a long time, not as long Wrigley Field, oh wait. Drink up Boston. You can all sip your Dunkin Donuts coffee in the morning.
Sad tonight because the baseball season is over...but I know in one year from tonight I'll be in Wrigley Field watching the Cubs win the World Series.
Cubs curses. With all the talk over the years about them, do you know that the Cubs have NEVER won a World Series at Wrigley Field? May be Wrigley is the ultimate curse?
So everyone who thinks the Cardinals are out of it, let me share a tale with you: "Its the year 2003, and the underdog Marlins are down 3-2 against the lonely Chicago Cubs. Game 6 is at Wrigley Field where the fans will be rocking as the Cubs are trying for their first World Series in what seems like forever. No one and I mean NO ONE, gave the Marlins a chance. But as you all know, whether it was by fan interference or a booted ball(the real reason), the Marlins came back to win games 6&7 and won the series" So all you Cardinals haters out there, there's that. Go Cardinals!!
game 6 of the World Series tonight at 7:15 local time at Wrigley Field, if the Cubs win the title tonight, the Cubs will become the 4th franchise to win 4 straight World Series champianships, here are the 2 teams that done it, the New York Yamkees and the Oakland As. Can the Cubs close out the title tonight, we'll find out later tonight.
When I was very young, that is, in first and second grade, I lived in Bedford, Massachusetts, about 16 miles from Boston. My Dad was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force and worked in R&D at Hanscom Field. He took the time to take me and my three brothers to two Red Sox games, one in 1957 and one in 1958. Both times they played the hated New York Yankees. I saw Ted Williams, Pete Runnells (sp?), Jimmy Piersall and many others play for the Sox. I saw Whitey Ford, Mickey Mantel, Yogi Berra, and many others who are all in the Baseball Hall of Fame for both teams play. I can still remember the smells of Fenway. I have since been to the National League shrine to Baseball, Wrigley Field, and consider myself a very fortunate man to have done so. Tonight the Red Sox have the opportunity to finally win a World Series at home for the first time since 1918, after which the "Curse of the Bambino" started. I'm praying that the Red Sox get it done. Go Red Sox!
'Oh, say, can you see . . . ' Trick question: When was the national anthem first played at a Major League Baseball game? Straight answer: Thirteen years (ITALICS) before (END ITALICS) it became the national anthem. Technically, “The Star-Spangled Banner” was just another tune when the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs opened the 1918 World Series at Wrigley Field. The Sox were leading 1-0 in the middle of the seventh inning as a military band unexpectedly broke into Francis Scott Key’s rousing number. The United States was embroiled in the Great War, as it was then called, and this was a patriotic time. On the mound, a slender 23-year-old Boston left-hander named George Herman Ruth doffed his cap and held it over his heart. So did all the other players and most of the derby-hatted men and umbrella-toting women in the crowd of 30,511. Many sang or spoke the words as the band played on. The date was Sept. 5, and the Series had started nearly a month early following a shortened regular season resulting f ...
10 years ago today, I was at Wrigley Field watching the Cubs come thisclose to going to the World Series. Until, of course, that stupid, infamous play on what should have been an easy out. Yeah, I'm looking at you, Alex Gonzalez. The REAL (and only) goat of Game 6.
10 years ago tomorrow I was sitting in Wrigley Field. Cubs were 5 outs away from advancing to first World Series in 58 years.
Or… Baseball Karma By Mary Lee Hannington Overall's 1911 Baseball Card Do you have the same impression that I do? This guy’s parents were illiterate and his name should have been Oliver Orville or perhaps pronunciation got in the way of some clerk's spelling on a birth certificate. After all, he was born in 1881 long before the laptop or even a decent typewriter could be found having only just been invented 20 years before. Orval was born in Farmsville, once Deep Creek, a very small agricultural town in California. The residents there had  to travel an entire day to retrieve their mail as there wasn't a post office, but there was a one room school house for the children. He was the Cincinnati Reds ace pitcher in 1905 winning 18 games, but was traded to the Chicago Cubs, who won the National League pennant that same year. He had his best season with the Cubs in 1907 and 1908 when they won the World Series twice. Now here is where it all gets real weird. The Tiger’s Anabel Sanchez was the first pitch ...

I consider the middle of October to be "The Sports Nexus." Baseball is winding down. Football is in full swing. Basketball and Hockey are revving up. There are several good sports movies there. Some of my favorites include: Field of Dreams, Hoosiers and The Sandlot. Today I'll be talking about Field of Dreams. Field of Dreams (1989) PG This is a rather heartwarming story about a Farmer (Kevin Costner) who lives in rural Iowa with his wife Annie (Amy Madigan) and young daughter Karin (Gaby Hoffmann). Ray's deceased father, John, loved baseball, the Chicago White Sox and Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta). Yes, that Shoeless Joe Jackson. Banned from baseball for his part in throwing the 1919 World Series. (AKA The Black Sox Scandal). One day while walking through his corn field Ray hears a disembodied voice whisper "If you build it, he will come." He is beside himself. Build what? He searches his feelings and deems "It" is a baseball diamond. So he plows under enough of his corn field to build it. His neighb ...
Today in Baseball History -- Oct. 12 -- from Mary Landers ... 1907 -- At Detroit’s Bennett Park, right-hander Mordecai 'Three Finger' Brown throws a 2-0 shutout beating the Tigers to capture the World Championship for the Cubs. Although Game 1 ended in a 3-3, 12-inning tie, Chicago becomes the first club to sweep a Fall Classic. 1916 -- In Game 5 of the World Series, Red Sox right-hander Ernie Shore three-hits the Robins at Braves Field, 4-1. With the victory, Boston (AL) captures its fourth World Championship in the 13-year history of the Fall Classic. 1920 -- At Cleveland's League Park, the Indians' hurler Stan Coveleski blanks the Robins, 3-0, to win the 1920 World Series. The Tribe wins the best of nine series 5 games to 2. 1923 -- In front of the largest crowd in baseball history, 62,430 fans are on hand to see Casey Stengel hit his second Home Run of the World Series. The round-tripper proves to be the difference when Giants hurler Art Nerf outduels Yankees' starter Sam Jones in Game 3 of the Fall ...
The last 385 World Series games have been held at venues other than Wrigley Field.
The last place team, 105 years without a World Series win, and not enough lighting at Wrigley Field... just a lovely experience.
To dream, perchance to dream.in the wee hours, found myself dreaming that the Indians were playing a World Series game vs Cincinnati on a beautiful fall afternoon at a neighborhood ballpark that was a cross between Wrigley Field and League Park. I'm walking up the street and Shin-Soo Choo is doing his pre-game stretch outside the ballpark. Nice!!
Some people remind me of Steve Bartman, that guy who caught the foul ball @ Wrigley Field, that cost the Cubbie's the World Series.
Got to see some cool stuff in ChiTown, got to see Wrigley Field. That is such a small place. I see why there will never be a World Series there, there is no where to park, LOL. I also saw Soldier Field and Celluar Field where the White Sox play.
IN Los Angeles, OUR TEMPLE TO BASEBALL WITH THE CITY HALL BUILDING RISING BEHIND! Dodger Stadium, occasionally referenced by local sportscasters with the metonym Chavez Ravine, is a stadium in Los Angeles. Located adjacent to Downtown Los Angeles, Dodger Stadium has been the home ballpark of Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Dodgers team since 1962. Dodger Stadium was constructed from 1959 to 1962 at a cost of $23 million, financed by private sources. Dodger Stadium is currently the third oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball (behind Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigley Field in Chicago) and is, by seating capacity, the largest ballpark in the world. The stadium hosted the 1980 MLB All-Star Game, as well as games of the 1963, 1965, 1966, 1974, 1977, 1978, 1981, and 1988 World Series. It also hosted the semifinals and finals of the 2009 World Baseball Classic as well as exhibition baseball during the 1984 Summer Olympics. The 2012 season marked the fiftieth anniversary of the stadium.
The Chicago Cubs last won a World Series in 1908, six years before Harry Caray was born, eight years before Albert Einstein published his general theory of relativity and
Day of my 30 days of Thankfulness is I'm Thankful for the Chicago Cubs. They haven't won the World Series since 1908 and yet every year people come to Wrigley Field to a game. They're Loveable Losers with a Beautiful old time ballpark that's fun to visit. I enjoy the time I've spent following and watching this team. Even though they aren't very good most years as I tell my Uncle Wayne Once a Cubs Fan ALWAYS a Cubs fan .I'm a Cubs fan for Life so Go Cubs Go
Awesome last 2 weeks. Golf with Dad in Bandon Dunes, OR, a 3 day weekend with my great wife in the Windy City of Chicago (witha tour of Wrigley Field and an NFL game at Soldier Field vs. Carolina Panthers and last but not least my San Francisco Giants winning the World Series. Just living the Dream!!!
If you are watching the World Series, then you probably have just seen one of the funniest commercials; State Farm and Andre Dawson in the ivy at Wrigley Field!
One thing Kerry Wood will never find in Wrigley Field's ivy.a World Series trophy.
Today is one of the Darkest Days in the history of baseball. Nine years ago tonight, my good friend Paul Boyter and I headed into Chicago and Wrigley Field for Game 6 of the NLCS against the Florida Fish. The Cubs led the series 3-2 and with phenom Mark Prior on the mound -- well, let's just say a trip to the World Series was a lock. Heading into the eighth inning, the Cubs were up 3-0 and Mr. Prior was sailing along. After that ... well, everything's a blur. I just remember plenty of tears, plenty of swearing and plenty of alcohol. But the good thing is, I'm over it now ... Almost.
I've never understood why Cubs fans and Cards fans are so combative against each other?!?! The Cubs may beat the Cards a few times during the regular season, but come October the Cubs tend to just disappear! Just in case there are any Cubs fans that want to dispute this... here you go: "The Cardinals–Cubs rivalry refers to the rivalry between the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs of the National League in Major League Baseball. The Cubs lead the series 1,100–1,058 through 2011, while the Cardinals lead in NL pennants with 18 against the Cubs' 16. However, the Cardinals have a clear edge when it comes to World Series successes, having won 11 championships to the Cubs' 2. Cardinals-Cubs games see numerous visiting fans in either St. Louis' Busch Stadium or Chicago's Wrigley Field. When the National League split into two, and then three divisions, the Cardinals and Cubs remained together. This has added excitement to 4 pennant races over the years."

In 1984 the Chicago Cubs held a 2 games to none lead against the San Diego Padres in the best of five NLCS. The series shifted away from Wrigley Field to Jack Murphy Stadium. The Padres would win the next three games thanks to the heroics of first baseman Steve Garvey and their closer, Goose Gossage. Back in that time only the four division (AL East, AL West, NL East, and NL West) winners qualified for the MLB playoffs. The East and West in each league alternated who had home field advantage in their championship series in the 2-3 format. Of course the Tigers crushed the Padres four games to one in the World Series. I hope the 2012 Tigers don't bow out of the playoffs like the Cubs did in '84 or the Reds did today against the Giants.
Oh you Cubs fans, I truly do emapthize with your plight. On this date back in 1945, Billy Sianis brought his pet goat to chew on some of Wrigley Field's finest blades of grass, only to be turned away. Back then two tickets to the World Series only cost $7.20. When the Cubs do make it back to the World Series (in 2015 according to Marty Mcfly's time travel), I hope they charge the same amount for these loyal fans of the diamond.
I love sports, I love Chicago sports. Are we not in the right dimension? We get this kid, Castro. And we get a line up on paper that almost compares to NY. After 2 weeks in to the season, we are 8 games out of first. Our, Castro, today, is batting 273? He gave up. What IS IT? Wrigley Field is a great venue! Why can not they get it together? They get some good players, maybe too old too. Maybe they need to watch MoneyBall. Afterall, after Billy Bean turned down Boston's offer, 2 years later, Boston won the World Series! The Cubs need new mentality!!! GO SOX!
Video - Having not won a World Series since 1908, the Chicago Cubs must contemplate the only solution that might restore the team to glory: Tear down Wrigley Field. Rich Cohen on The News Hub explains his rational for this drastic proposal. Photo: Getty Images.
I see Wrigley Field put the on all the flagpoles & mowed it into the outfield. Not in honor of Ron Santo but , if you add them all up, that's how many years it's been since they've won a World Series.
National League won last night. If the Cubs keep winning more games and move on up we could see them hoisting up the World Series trophy Wrigley Field!
So last night after work I was watching ESPN Films 'Catching *** . A documentary about the Steve Bartman incident during a Major League Baseball playoff game between the Chicago Cubs and the Florida Marlins on October 14, 2003, at Wrigley Field in Chicago and I was like, really people!? Was it that serious Chicago fans ( Moe Hardin)?! Geesh, you would have eventually lost to my NY Yankees anyway in the World Series. GET OVER IT!!
Strange Fact of the Day: Baby Ruth Candy Bar Although the name of the candy bar sounds like the name of the famous baseball player Babe Ruth, the Curtiss Candy Company traditionally claimed that it was named after President Grover Cleveland's daughter, Ruth Cleveland. The candy maker, located on the same street as Wrigley Field, named the bar "Baby Ruth" in 1921, as Babe Ruth's fame was on the rise, over 30 years after Cleveland had left the White House, and 17 years after his daughter, Ruth, had died. The company did not negotiate an endorsement deal with Ruth, and many saw the company's story about the origin of the name to be a devious way to avoid having to pay the baseball player any royalties. Curtiss successfully shut down a rival bar that was approved by, and named for, Ruth, on the grounds that the names were too similar. As if to tweak their own official denial of the name's origin, after Babe Ruth's Called Shot at Wrigley Field in the 1932 World Series, Curtiss installed an illuminated advertis ...
I like the fact Red Sox are in Town playing the Cubs. Instead of them invading Fenway Park, we're invading Wrigley Field this Season. I'm surprised we also have Red Sox fans all over in Town & at Wrigley Field. Just like right now I'm wearing my Curt Schilling throwback jersey. Let's go Red Sox! Let's beat the Cubs in Wrigleyville! Sorry Cubs fans. Wait, do I even know some Cubs fans? Are there even Cubs fans around? Ooopps! Well atleast my Red Sox have won 2 World Series. Might take another 104 years for Cubs fans to see a World Series Championship.
“As chairman of the Chicago Cubs, I repudiate any return to racially divisive issues in this year’s presidential campaign or in any setting — like my father has,” Tom Ricketts said in the statement. “I shall have no further comment on this or any other election year political issue. My full-time focus is on making the Chicago Cubs a World Series champion preserving Wrigley Field and making the Chicago Cubs a great corporate citizen.” Except...
Note to Cubs fans: today you play the White Sux at home. I'll be (gasp!) rooting for the Sux. Enjoy your Wrigley Field just as it is (true preservation!) because I don't think your mayor can swing the public funding of a make-over now. And think how close you could come to your ultimate goal if there was a Ricketts Plan to Win the World Series - using some of this spare cash to buy better ballplayers! And make Ryne Sandberg, currently the manager of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the AAA affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, your Cubbies manager - a no-brainer to sell tickets
Because of greater crowd capacity, the played their 1918 World Series home games at Comiskey Park rather than at Wrigley Field.
Will be rooting for the Mariners to beat the White Sox while in Chicago .. but I am allowed to have a National League team as well so I pick the all time best team at almost winning it all - The Chicago Cubs! Hopefully we will take care of the reds on Sunday at Wrigley Field if we arent rained out. Since the cubs are 0-7 in the world series in the last 103 years .. maybe they are due to lose another World Series this time vs. the Mariners. Hey it could happen!
