This week in 1908, 1945

Every weekend JOBC goes back in time to the last year the Cubs won the pennant and the World Series.

This week in 1908, the Wright Brothers take the world's first flight with a passenger aboard and 3-finger Brown pitches a one-hitter for the Cubs.

This week in 1945
, Chicago celebrates the end of the war in Europe (VE Day), and the Cubs join the celebration on the streets of Philadelphia. They are on their longest road trip of the year.
