ARMOUR SQUARE — The Chicago White Sox are pulling for the Chicago Cubs.

On a Sox video billboard just off the Dan Ryan Expy. near U.S. Cellular Field, you'll find this message congratulating the North Siders for clinching their first National League pennant since 1945:

The Sox also took to Twitter to share the note:

The World Series kicks off against the Indians in Cleveland on Tuesday.

In September, the Sox congratulated the Cubs after the North Siders clinched the National League Central title. After St. Louis lost 6-2 at San Francisco on Sept. 15, the Cubs won the division for the first time since 2008.

Last year, the Sox congratulated the Cubs on winning the National League Division Series against the Cardinals and their trip to the National League Championship Series against the Mets.

After the Sox won the 2005 World Series, the Cubs took out a full-page ad in the Tribune offering their congrats.

The Cubs and Wrigley Field are 95 percent owned by a trust established for the benefit of the family of Joe Ricketts, owner and CEO of DNAinfo.com. Joe Ricketts has no direct involvement in the management of the iconic team.
