Chicago Cubs Baseball -
In 1876, the Chicago Cubs, originally called the Chicago White Stockings, became one of eight charter members of the National League. The White Stockings won the inaugural National League baseball championship, and played on as the Cubs, soon becoming one of baseball's first dynasties, winning six of the League's first 11 titles.
The Chicago Cubs have continued building their legacy for over 100 years through World Series victories, record-breaking achievements, and a roster of baseball greats including Maddux and Sosa. Even with the infamous "curse of the billy goat", fans still love our Cubbies!
Don't miss the Chicago Cubs round the bases at historic Wrigley Field, a legendary ballpark and one of the most famous Chicago attractions. Wrigley Field is the second-oldest Major League baseball park in the country and was built in 1914. One of Wrigley Field's most famous historic moments was Babe Ruth's "called shot" during Game 3 of the 1932 World Series. Ruth pointed to a bleacher location and then hit Charlie Root's next pitch for a homer. Call 773-404-2827 for Chicago Cubs tickets or visit chicago.cubs.mlb.com
