Major League Baseball
The Chicago Cubs haven't won a National League pennant in more than seven decades. They have only won the World Series twice, and that was more than 110 years ago. Could 2016 be their year?
The Chicago Cubs play in the Central division of the National League of Major League Baseball (MLB). They are one of two teams representing Chicago.
The Chicago White Sox play in the Central division of MLB's American League.
Established in 1876, the Chicago Cubs – originally known as the White Stockings – were renamed the Chicago Cubs in 1903.
The team was one of the founding members of the National League.
The Chicago Cubs have won two East Division titles, four Central Division Titles, and 16 National League pennants.
The Chicago Cubs haven’t won a National League championship, however, since 1945. The last time they won a World Series was in 1908.
The Chicago Cubs have suffered the longest drought in Major League Baseball.
Could 2016 be their year?
Affectionately know as the Friendly Confines, Wrigley Field is one of the most iconic ballparks in Major League Baseball.
It is the oldest baseball stadium in the National League and the second oldest in Major League Baseball. Only Fenway Park in Boston is older.
If you can't get tickets to watch games in the stadium, you can still watch them in person from the roof tops of 11 nearby buildings, which can be rented by groups.
Maybe the Cub are playing on the road, and maybe you don't live in Chicago.
A list sports bars follows. Some are Cubs hangouts, and others are friendly to Cubs fans.
