Most Cubs fans have waited their entire lives to watch the Cubs play in a World Series. There are a few fans though out there over the age of 70 who did witness and experience the last Cubs’ World Series. That was in 1945. The Cubs lost that year to the Tigers.
Glenn Beckmeyer was there and he’s back watching the Cubs in Cleveland.
“I was at the last Cubs’ World Series,” says Beckmeyer. “It was game five. The Cubs lost 8-4. Hank Borowy started and we lost to Newhauser. My dad got the tickets. We went to the game and I said, ‘Man this is great! I’m coming back!’ You can see it’s 71 years since I got back. This year the Cubs will win it all!”
Beckmeyer doesn’t think anyone will have to wait 71 years again to see another Cubs’ World Series.
