2016: The year in shakeups and surprises: Chicago Cubs win the World Series: Surprising the whole world, the Chicago Cubs finally won the Major League Baseball World Series, defeating the Cleveland Indians 8‐7 to win the series 4‐3. The win brings to an end one of the most notoriously long waits for silverware in sporting history: the Cubs had won back‐to‐back World Series titles in 1907 and 1908, but had not won baseball's biggest prize since.
