CHICAGO — Harry Caray believed then. Chicago Cubs fans all believe now.
On the final day of the 1991 regular season, the Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-3. They finished the year below .500, and missed out on a pennant run. But that didn’t stop legendary WGN-TV Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray from providing some positivity in his postgame report.
Caray dedicated a few minutes after the win to discuss the season, saying it was “too bad we couldn’t have had a victory that meant a pennant.”
But Caray immediately followed with: “But that will come; sure as God made green apples. Some day the Chicago Cubs are going to be in the World Series. ”
Caray added the team may make it sooner than fans think.
Now, in 2015, the Cubs have their first chance since 2003 to make it to the Fall Classic. They will have to make it past the New York Mets in order to do so.
