The History of the Chicago Cubs
While The Cubs did manage to win the World Series back in 2016, there are few MLB fans that have had to suffer the way Cubs fans have. Back in the 1970s, actor Joe Mantegna wrong a play titled “Bleacher Bums.” The script focuses of supporters of The Cubs, who continue to be loyal to their team even when The Cubs are struggling. Of course, this hasn’t always been the case for The Cubs. At the turn of the 20th Century, the team managed to win the World Series in both 1907 and 1908. Between 1910 and 1945, they participated in the title round seven times, although they never managed to win the title. The team came very close to winning in National League pennant back in 2003, when they were playing against the Florida Marlins. Unfortunately, a fan named Steve Bartman destroyed their chances when he grabbed a catchable foul ball. The Cubs wound up losing both the game and the World Series. They wouldn’t back it to the post-season again for another 4 years. It would be 13 years before The Cubs managed to take the World Series title again.
The Greatest Moments in Cubs History
Even during the years when The Cubs were struggling, they still had one of the best players in the MLB. Ernie Banks, a shortstop who played for The Cubs between 1953 and 1971, was known for being a passionate and talented player. His catchphrase was “Let’s play two.” Banks was the first National League player to win MVP awards back to back. He entered the Baseball Hall of Fame in the year 1977.
