Chicago is lucky to have two baseball teams, the Cubs and the White Sox. Chicago has a large population to support two teams. Both teams agree in a “Peace Pact” to allow both major leauge teams to play in Chicago.
Chicago Cubs: The Chicago Cubs started in 1876 originally named the White Stockings, then changed a few times to Orphans, Infants, Remnants, Colts, and then in 1907 was named Cubs because of the amount of young baseball players on the team. The Cubs won the World Series in 1907 against the Detroit Tigers 4-0, then again in 1908 against the Detroit Tigers 4-1, then recently in 2016 against Cleveland Indians 4-3. In 1916 Weeghman Park was built, then later named Cubs Park in 1920, and now named Wrigley Field. Wrigley Field is located at 1060 W Addison St, Chicago, IL 60613.
White Sox: The Chicago White Sox started in 1894 originally named the Sioux City Cornhuskers as a minor league team and was bought by Charles Comiskey who brought them to St.Paul Minnesota. The team was relocated to the south side of Chicago, and was named White Sox after the Chicago Cubs original name, White Stockings. The White Sox won the World Series in 1906 against the Chicago Cubs 4-2, again in 1917 against the New York Giants 4-2, and then in 2005 against the Houston Astros 4-0. In 1991, Comiskey Park was built, then later named U.S Cellular Field in 2003, and now called the Guaranteed Rate Field. The Guaranteed Rate Field is located at 333 W 35th St, Chicago, IL 60616.
