Cubs fans dedicate Wrigley Field wall to those who died before the World Series win
Chicago Cubs fans took to the streets of Wrigleyville after winning the 2016 World Series in the early hours of Thursday morning and headed over to the Sheffield Avenue wall of Wrigley Field to write down the names of loved ones who did not live long enough to witness the championship victory.

It is estimated that 0.0009% of Chicago's population was alive when the Cubs had last won the World Series in 1908, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell. The last remaining Cubs player that appeared in the 1908 World Series was Ed Reulbach, who died in 1961.
