Chicago Cubs Baseball Team

The Chicago Cubs are a Major League Baseball team based in Chicago, Illinois. They are in the Central Division of the National League. The Chicago Cubs have been the only baseball team in the National League to stay in the same city for more than 100 years.

The Cubs' baseball park is called Wrigley Field. In 1920 Wrigley Field was called Weeghman Park. In 1926 William Wrigley, the creator of Juicy Fruit Chewing Gum, bought Weeghman Park and named it Wrigley Field after himself.

In 1981 William Wrigley sold Wrigley Field to The Tribune Company for 20.5 million dollars. William Wrigley and his family had owned it for 65 years. The Chicago Cubs are a very important part of baseball history and have been big part of people's lives since 1876.

The Chicago Cubs have the longest dry spell between championships in all of professional sports, having failed to win a World Series since 1908. To make matters worse, the Chicago Cubs haven't even been in a World Series since 1945, before there were divisions. They didn't win any playoff series between 1945 and 2003, when they beat the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS.

The Chicago Cubs 2003 playoff run ended in an emotional game 7 of the NLCS against the Florida Marlins. While the Chicago Cubs were at one point ahead in the 7-game series 3 games to 1, the Florida Marlins came back to win the final three games. Florida Marlins pitcher Josh Beckett shut out the Chicago Cubs in game 5. An implosion of the Chicago Cubs defense late in game 6, following a now-infamous incident of a fan named Steve Bartman touching a ball in foul territory, allowed the Marlins to score 8 runs in the eighth inning and tie the series. The Chicago Cubs were unable to win the final game at home, and the Chicago Cubs were without a pennant again.

What may be the least known and cried over but possibly the most telling statistic of futility for the Chicago Cubs, though, is that they haven't had back-to-back winning seasons since 1973 (as of the end of the 2003 season). Not division titles, not playoff appearances, just winning seasons. Yet, they still are perennially in the top 10 in the league in attendance.
