Featured Map for 23 October 2016:
Cubs and Indians World Series

 

The Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers yesterday, winning the National Leagee pennant for the first time since 1945. The Cubs' 71 years was the longest World Series drought in Major Leage Baseball.

Next Tuesday, the Cubs will play the Cleveland Indians in Cleveland; the Indians beat the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday to secure the American League pennant and their first World Series berth since 1997. The Indians last won the World Series in 1948, with only the Cubs having gone longer (they last won in 1908).

Today's Featured Map illustrates the World Series, traveling between Cleveland's Progressive Field and Chicago's Wrigley Field, along with the pennant contests.
