Chicago Cubs: Jordan was able to celebrate with the Cubs during their 2003 playoff run.

On October 5, 2003, the Chicago Cubs won their first postseason series since 1908 in Atlanta. The 5-1 game 5 NLDS victory behind Kerry Wood still goes down as one of the best games in Cubs history. Old Turner Field was basically “Wrigley Field South” that night with the 20K+ Cubs fans in the ballpark. After celebrating on the field with all the fans, they entered the clubhouse for another celebration.

Who joined them? You guessed it, Michael Jordan! He was just hanging around, wearing a blue cap, and drinking some Bud Light. It was another moment in which Jordan and Sosa got to join each other during a historic time. Michael Morrissey of the New York Post did a piece on his visit and got some funny quotes from Dusty Baker.

"“He can pretty much have free reign and go where he wants to go in anybody’s clubhouse.” – Former Cubs manager, Dusty Baker"

Next. Where would the Cubs play in the NFL. dark

Sadly there was no M.J. in the Cubs clubhouse during their 2016 World Series win, but this was still an awesome moment.

Will there be any mention of Michael Jordan’s post-championship hangouts with the Sammy Sosa and the Cubs in The Last Dance? Who knows, probably would not be anything more than a mention, but we will see.
