Cubs win 1st Series title since 1908, beat Indians in Game 7

The Cubs have returned to sweet home Chicago hours after knocking off the Indians in Cleveland to win their first World Series in 108 years.



A caravan of team buses was welcomed by a raucous crowd outside Wrigley Field early Thursday morning. Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo showed off the World Series trophy for the cheering fans.



Players took turns passing the hardware around on their way back from Cleveland. Several Cubs players can be seen on Twitter posing with the trophy on the team plane, including Dexter Fowler, Jorge Soler and John Lackey.



Catcher David Ross, who homered in the final game of his career, shared his picture with the trophy and quipped, "Look what the boys got me for my retirement."
