The Chicago Cubs are an American professional baseball team in Chicago, Illinois, who are members of the National League Central division of Major League Baseball. The team plays home games at Wrigley Field on the city’s North Side. The Cubs are one of two major league teams in Chicago; the other, the Chicago White Sox, are members of the American League Central division.
The team was a founding member of the National League in 1876, becoming the Chicago Cubs in 1903.
The Cubs have not won the World Series in 107 years, the longest championship drought of any major North American professional sports team, and are often referred to as the “Lovable Losers” because of this distinction.
