The Chicago Cubs are one of the oldest clubs in Major League Baseball, and despite being defined for most of their long history for its postseason failures, but after finally ending the longest World Series drought in Major League history, the Cubs have been considered one of the top teams in baseball. The franchise first began in 1876 as the Chicago White Stockings. In 1890, the team was renamed the Chicago Colts and then once again in 1989 when they became the Chicago Orphans. In 1903, the team became the Chicago Cubs, which has renamed the team name ever since.

Cubs History

The team floated through several homes (23rd Street Grounds, Lakefront Park I & II, West Side Park I & II, South Side Park) before they ended up at Wrigley Field beginning in the 1916 season. Known for the ivy covering the brick outfield wall and the hand-turned scoreboard, Wrigley Field is the second oldest baseball stadium in Major League Baseball behind Boston’s Fenway Park. The ballpark has also served as the home to the NFL’s Chicago Bears from 1921 to 1970.


The Cubs have won a total of three World Series, with the first two games coming back-to-back in 1907 and 1908. The World Series came after the 1906 Cubs won 116 games for a Major League record win percentage of .763 but then fell in the World Series in six games to the crosstown Chicago White Sox. The Cubs would reach the top the following two years, defeating the Detroit Tigers both years. Following the 1908 World Series, it would take the Cubs 108 years, the longest postseason drought in all North American sports, before they would finally once again reach the top with a World Series win over the Cleveland Indians in seven games in 2016. The Cubs have won the NL Pennant a total of 17 times with the first coming in 1876 and the most recent being their 2016 World Series year. The team has also won a total of seven division titles, two in the East and five in the Central. The team has also made the postseason three times as a Wild Card team.

Cubs Hall of Famers

A discussion about the most famous Cubs of all time has to start with Mr. Cub himself, Ernie Banks. The shortstop and first baseman played his entire big leagues career from 1953 to 1971 with the Chicago Cubs after playing in the Negro Leagues for a few years. He also served as the player-coach between 1967 and 1971. He was a 14-time All-Star selection and was awarded NL MVP twice, also leading the National League in home runs and RBIs two times. Banks would end his Hall of Fame career with a batting average of .274 while racking up 2,583 hits, 512 home runs and 1,636 runs batted in.

A name younger fans may remember watching is second baseman Ryne Sandberg, who played with the Chicago Cubs from 1982 to 1994 and then again from 1996 to 1997. One of the best defensive second basemen in his time, Sandberg would earn nine Gold Glove Awards and 10 All-Star selections. Sandberg also won seven Silver Slugger Awards and was the NL home run leader in 1990.
