Cubs return to the World Series For the First Time Since 1945
The Chicago Cubs are just a day away from facing the Cleveland Indians in the 112th World Series. This is the Cubs’ first World Series appearance since 1945 where they lost to the Tigers in seven games. The Cubs have not won the World Series since 1908 when they took the game from the Tigers.
The Cubs have been under the curse of the Billy Goat when a local bar owner brought a goat inside the ballpark before Game 4.
The Cleveland Indians took the World Series in 1948. They have been to the World Series in 1954, 1995 and 1997.
