Chicago Cubs fans have had better Octobers than October 2009. Here is an example of a year they were still following the team in October, and why.
On this date in 1908, the Cubs won Game 4 of the World Series, and took a 3-1 lead in the series. Mordecai Brown pitched a four hitter, 3B Harry Steinfeldt (photo) and CF Solly Hofman each drove in a run, and the Cubs won 3-0.
A measly 12,000 or so fans were in the stands on this blustery Tuesday afternoon in Detroit.
