Another year is in the books but this time the Chicago Cubs are not at home with their heads hung. As always, fans continued to come out and support this club as they pushed for a World Series title.

There is no doubt that the Chicago Cubs have the greatest fanbase in all of professional sports. Going through a 108-year drought isn’t the easiest thing to do when you’re a fan of the North Siders.

This organization has been known to set large attendance records year-after-year even if the Cubs are at the bottom of the division. You can’t beat the history of Wrigley Field even if you’re not a baseball fan. Wrigley should be on your bucket list.

A beautiful ballpark in the middle of a neighborhood that will treat you like family. One of the best things about Wrigleyville. Sure, there will be a few hecklers amongst the bunch but that’ll happen from time to time.

More from Chicago Cubs News

Our very own Richard Kagan wrote an article on the Chicago Cubs drawing in three million fans in 2016. In fact, over three million in 81 home runs. That number is absolutely ridiculous.

Remember, five million fans flocked the streets of the Windy City as our World Series champions made their way to the victory rally.

At one point, fans had trouble making their way to the park and had to sit outside while the rest watched in joy. They even had people climbing trees just to watch their heroes take the stage.

Second to None

Watching the Chicago Cubs win the World Series is something that we will never forget. Having to muscle our way through the tough times, including last season when they reached the National League Championship Series. Not to mention, in Joe Maddon‘s first year as manager.

Only to be swept by Daniel Murphy and the New York Mets. Which brought up the whole “Murphy Curse” or whatever sports media labeled it at the time. Well, the Cubs didn’t have to worry about him in 2016.

Next: Cubs draw in three million fans at home

Winning it all in 2016 is only going to increase their attendance in 2017. One downfall could be ticket prices raising, especially the first two months of the regular season. Can’t imagine how much it is going to cost in order to attend Opening Day.

Should be well worth it in the end, right?
