The Chicago Cubs’ World Series win last night was 108 years in the making. After the win, players stormed Progressive Field in Cleveland while fans in Chicago erupted in cheers outside of Wrigley Field. All of this in celebration of one of the greatest World Series games in baseball history. News 5 spoke with one life-long Cubs fan who was in Wrigleyville last night.

“Everyone from families with little kids, to grannies’ and grandpas’ walking down the streets of Chicago to the stadium and barely moving a few feet in the process, but everyone having a good time is something special and something unique,” James Keck said.

Chicago is the home of the Cubs, but here in Mobile 900 miles away fans were celebrating too. News 5 spoke with fans downtown.

“It was the most exciting game ever. They have been some great game sevens in the past, but for me, this was the best,” one man said.
Even shops downtown have had a hard time keeping cubs gear in stock. We spoke who Patrick Setterstrom at the Vault who said, “throughout the series we’ve been really doing well…Mobilians and out-of-towners have been coming through and buying hats and shirts and socks all I’ve got left are a few socks so we’ve had a good bit of Chicago fans–that’s for sure.”

Cubs fans are still celebrating the big win today. The outside of Wrigley Field has been chalked by fans commemorating a baseball game that will go down in World Series history.
