This week in 1908, 1945

Every weekend JOBC goes back in time to the last year the Cubs won the World Series (1908) and the NL Pennant (1945).

This week in 1908
, a mysterious explosion in Siberia is thought to be a UFO, Cy Young pitches a no-hitter at 41, and Cubs pitcher Ed Reulbach almost misses the team train because he had a craving for fried chicken.

This week in 1945, Ike returns home, the Battle of Okinawa finally ends, and the Cubs are mired in 5th place.
