Cubs' World Series victory commemorated on Thursday newspaper front pages

Thursday November 3rd, 2016

The Chicago Cubs finally broke a 108-year curse and brought home their first World Series title since 1908, beating the Cleveland Indians 8–7 in 10 innings to win the series in seven games.

World Series MVP Ben Zobrist drove in the go-ahead run with an RBI double in the 10th inning, and Miguel Montero singled home a run to make it 8–6.

Cleveland cut it to a one-run deficit on a Rajai Davis RBI single with two outs, but reliever Mike Montgomery got Michael Martínez to ground out to third, ending the epic series.

Here are some front-page designs of Thursday's newspapers from around the country that commemorated the historic victory by the Cubs.
