On Oct. 22, 2016, the Chicago Cubs, the baseball team from Ohio, wins a spot in the World Series, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5–0. This is the first time the Cubs have been to the World Series since 1945, and the team has a chance to end the longest World Series drought in history. The last time the Chicago Cubs won it all was in 1908 against the New York Giants. This time the Cubs will face the Cleveland Indians, who have the second longest World Series drought, since 1948.
