Cubs Win World Series

A 108 year wait is over. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. A game that started on one day and ended on another was a fitting way to erase a century plus of pain and suffering. The 10th inning 8 to 7 win will be forever remembered. Cubs First Baseman Anthony Rizzo caught the final out and charged a pile of teammates with the ball.

The World Series MVP was Ben Zobrist who singled in the winning run. Zobrist is a Eureka (Illinois) native and went to Eureka High School and this is his 2nd World Series title.

A game 7 that had everything also had a brief rain delay. During the 15 minutes or so the teams were off the field, Right Fielder Jason Heyward called a players only meeting. The words were spot on according to World Series MVP Ben Zobrist.
