Chicago Cubs History
The Chicago Cubs won back to back World Series in 1907 and 1908. They have not won one since.
During the National League Division Series in 2003 the Chicago Cubs were within five outs of winning game 6 when an infamous fan interfered with a foul ball that might have been caught. The batter eventually walked and the Florida Marlins scored eight runs and went on to win the game and the series.
Billy Williams was a Chicago Cubs outfielder between 1959 and 1974. He won the National League batting crown in 1972 and hit 20 or more homers for 13 straight seasons. He is now in the baseball Hall of Fame.
