Front pages: Cubs make history with first postseason clincher at Wrigley Field

My town is a pretty happy place today. Consider the history they made yesterday.

The Cubs win over the Cardinals was the first time a Chicago baseball team clinched a postseason series on its home field since the White Sox in 1906. And the Sox beat the Cubs in the World Series that year.

Or think about this another way: The Cubs and White Sox have combined to play more than 230 seasons; only 1 postseason clincher on home turf.

So yeah, this is a big deal in Chicago.
