The Chicago Cubs are going to the World Series for the first time in 71 years. The Cubs just beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, meaning they advance to the World Series.

As Addison Russell, Javier Baez, and Anthony Rizzo turned the final double play, Chicago leapt into a triumphant mood. The streets around the stadium were over populated, and there were crowds stampeding through all of Wrigleyville.  

Copious amounts of people were doing things such as breaking down fences to Wrigleyville, climbing lampposts, and street lights.

“I have been a Cubs fan for ten years,” said Mariano Ortiz, an RBHS student. “I have been highly sleep deprived throughout this postseason.”

Also this week, Cubs catcher and left fielder Kyle Schwarber has been cleared to play in the World Series. The Cubs will most likely use him as a designated hitter.
