Chicago Cubs Tickets: History of the Charter Franchise
The Chicago Cubs are one of the founding eight charter franchises of Major League Baseball and have been "The Cubs" since 1902.
Early on, the Cubs would find success, as the team would come in first place in the National League four out of five years starting in 1906, when they won 116 games and recorded the best winning percentage in MLB history at .763! They would make it to the World Series 5 times in a 13 year period and would win back to back World Series in 1907 and 1908.

Although the Cubs have not won a World Series since their back to back victories in 1908, their fans have had plenty to cheer about over the years. In 1976 at Dodger Stadium, Cub outfielder Rick Monday confronted two protestors who had run onto the field and were attempting to burn the American flag. Monday ran over to them and snatched the flag away before they could burn it. The next inning when he came to bat, he received a standing ovation from the Dodger crowd, as the score board flashed "Rick Monday - You made a great play!"
In 1978, Dave Kingman hit a shot that touched off the third porch roof on the east side of Kenmore, which was estimated at 555 feet and is regarded as the longest home run in Wrigley Field history.
In April of 2008, the franchise would record its 10,000th regular season victory.
Great Cub's broadcaster Harry Caray would achieve almost celebrity status during his 17 year career with the team, as he became famous for saying "Holy Cow!"
Power Players This Season
This season, the Cubs will look to third baseman Aramis Ramirez to continue his production, as he belted 25 HRs and had 83 RBIs last season. Adding support should be Kosuke Fukudome and Geovany Soto, who combined for 30 HRs and 97 RBIs last season.
On the mound, veteran starter Ryan Dempster is coming off one of his better years and hopes to improve on his team leading 3.85 ERA.
