ROSCOE VILLAGE — The Cubs World Series trophy continued its victory tour, this time paying a visit to Chicago's other baseball champs.
The Commissioner's Trophy didn't have far to travel, just a short drive west on Addison Street to the home of the defending Public League title holders, the Lane Tech Indians.
Mike Lufrano, the Cubs chief legal officer and a Lane Tech alum, arranged the trophy's appearance.
Though the teams' fortunes converged in 2016, when it comes to championships, the Cubs have a whole lot of catching up to do. The Indians' latest baseball title was its 23rd, the most by a team in any sport in Public League history.
