There’s two things almost every baseball fan knows: the Cubs are one of the oldest most beloved franchises, and they haven’t won the World Series in over a century. More recently they haven’t seen a winning record in the last four season, losing 87, 91, 101, and 96 games in each of those last season, respectively. As a way to reward those fans the Cubs announced that they will not be increasing ticket prices for their current season ticket holders. A kind gesture to a fan base that is starving for a playoff run. When GM Theo Epstein was brought in from the Boston Red Sox two years ago a new sense of hope was brought to the city of Chicago. Unfortunately, fans have yet to see Theo’s addition pay-off, but at least they won’t have to pay more to see if he can improve the team in 2014.
