Booking Chicago Cubs Player Appearances
Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs are a team in the National League Central division based in Chicago, Illinois and have been playing home games at famed Wrigley Field for nearly a century. The team was established in 1876, originally as the Chicago White Stockings, followed by the Chicago Colts from 1890-1897, the Chicago Orphans for four seasons, and have been the Chicago Cubs since 1903. The Cubs have the distinction of being well known as the team that has not won a World Series for 103 years, the longest of any other major American professional sports team. Their last National League pennant came back in 1945.
Despite the team’s inability to win the biggest prize in baseball for over a century, they have had a number of outstanding players throughout their history. In the early 20th century, the Cubs won two World Series titles, in 1907 and 1908, led by player/manager Frank Chance, shortstop Joe Tinker and second baseman Johnny Evers. In 1945, their last World Series appearance, the team was managed by Charlie Grimm, with starring players that included first baseman Phil Cavaretta and center field Andy Pafko. After that season, the team experienced a decades-long slump, although Ernie Banks was a bright spot on the team from 1953 through 1971. Their next division win came in 1984 under manager Jim Frey and led by Ryne Sandberg who was named the National League MVP as well as pitcher Rick Sutcliffe who won the National League Cy Young Award. The turn of the century brought the Cubs three NL Central division titles, in 2003, 2007 and 2008. Some of their starring players included Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez and Mark DeRosa. Today, Dave Sveum manages the Cubs and they are led by shortstop Starlin Castro, first baseman Anthony Rizzo and outfielder Alfonso Soriano.
