They are members of the Central Division of Major League Baseball's National League. They are one of two Major League clubs based in Chicago (the other being the Chicago White Sox), the Cubs are also one of the two remaining charter members of the National League (the other being the Atlanta Braves). The franchise has not won a championship in 104 years, which is longer than that of any other major North American professional sports team.
The Cubs are often referred as "The North Siders" because Wrigley Field, where they have played their home games since 1916, is located in Chicago's north side Lakeview community. They are also often called "The Boys in Blue" noting the team's primary uniform color, (which itself is often referred to as "Cubbie Blue") or simply as "The Cubbies."
Chicago Cubs in The War That Came EarlyEdit
The Chicago Cubs played against the New York Yankees in the 1938 World Series. A platoon of U.S. Marines stationed in Peking were able to listen to Game 3 of the Series. When Yankee Joe Gordon went 2-4 with a home run and three RBI, Pete McGill believed Gordon had sealed the game for the Yankees, and that the 3-0 lead would be insurmountable by the Cubs.
