Cubs, Indians Meet Again — And This Time Both Are Winners

By Patty Wetli | March 28, 2017 8:22am

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.

The Cubs and Wrigley Field are 95 percent owned by an entity controlled 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.
