Every World Series Game 7 winner in history
The Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians will play in the 37th Game 7 in World Series history. Here’s a list of every team to win a Game 7.
On November 2nd, the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians will participate in the 37th Game 7 in the World Series. Game 7s have created some of the greatest memories from the Fall Classic.
Who will soon forget the Kansas City Royals nearly pulling off a win over the San Francisco Giants in 2014? Alex Gordon’s triple is still debated to this day. Should he have gone for an inside the park home run? Luis Gonzalez’s walkoff single in 2001 is one of the greatest memories in the history of baseball.
The last time the Indians were in a Game 7? 1997, when the Florida Marlins beat the Indians 3-2 in 11 innings. The Cubs last appearance in a Game Seven was in 1945, when they lost to the Detroit Tigers. Neither team has won a Game Seven.
