Watch the Chicago Cubs take another whack at a World Series during a game this season. The Cubs have yet to win a World Series but loyal sports fans keep the historic Wrigley Field booming on game days.

The Chicago Cubs play in Major League Baseball's National League in the Central Division. The famous Wrigley Field is the host of their home games. They are one of the oldest active teams in major North American sports, and one of two MLB teams based in Chicago, sharing the city with the Chicago White Sox.

The Cubs claim the not-so-grand honor of experiencing the longest championship drought in American professional sports history, having gone 102 years without winning the World Series.

But the team is, of course a hometown favorite, with fans often referring to the Cubs as the "Lovable Losers."

The club is synonymous with one of the most famous ballparks in baseball history, Wrigley Field. To their credit and staying power, the Chicago Cubs are the oldest active team in major North American sports still currently in its original city.

Catch a Chicago Cubs game at the historic Wrigley Field, built in 1914 and the home of the MLB Chicago Cubs since 1916 and to the NFL Chicago Bears from 1921 to 1970.

With a seating capacity of around 41,160, it is one of the only fields that allows rooftop seating on nearby apartment buildings for fans to get a peak of the game from up top. Much of the rooftop seating available has bleachers, open bar, and specialty foods. The seats are not counted in seating configurations. The neighborhood around the ballpark is full of residential streets, bars, and restaurants and is often referred to as Wrigleyville.

Wrigley Field is famous for its ivy-covered brick outfield wall and is the only ballpark in the Major Leagues with ivy in the playing area. The field is also known for the unusual wind patterns off Lake Michigan, along with features like the hand-turned scoreboard and its red entrance marquee. The iconic field has made cameos in movies like "The Blues Brothers," "Rookie of the Year," "The Natural," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "The Break-Up," and "A League of Their Own."

The Seventh Inning Stretch at Wrigley Field is celebrated by singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," a tradition made popular by Hall of Fame announcer Harry Caray. Since Caray's death in 1998, Cubs players and celebrities have been invited to sing the song. Guest singers have included former Cubs players Ryne Sandberg, Mike Krukow, and Mark Grace; NBA basketballer Tracy McGrady, and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon. Ozzy Osbourne, Eddie Vedder, Tom Arnold, James Belushi, Bill Murray and Jay Leno have loaned their vocals to the tradition as well.
