We've talked about the Chicago Cubs' 1908 World Series, and the 1945 World Series.

But the Cubs also played the 1932 World Series against Babe Ruth and The Yankees.

One of the Cubs employees in the 30's, and perhaps the oldest living former Cubs employee is Lenny Jelinek.

Lenny is 98-years-old and is a World War II veteran.

He's a lifelong Cubs fan who worked at Wrigley Field as an usher.

Lenny joined WGN Morning News and talked about his time as an usher at Wrigley, the Cubs postseason run and how he feels about there play in the World Series.

"I feel pretty good," he said. "We got the two best pitchers in the National League in Arrieta and Hendricks."
