  1. The ’67 Cubs Took First Today

    On this day in 1967, the “Lovable Losers” took their first step toward respectability on a crazy Sunday afternoon at #WrigleyField when the crowd wouldn’t leave. The #Cubs got a 3-hitter from Fergie Jenkins, who had a double, triple and RBI to beat the #Reds. Their win put them in the win column for the 13th time in 14 games and in first place that late in the season for the first time since 1945. The crowd wouldn’t budge until the grounds crew changed the center field standings flags and put the Cubs on top.
