ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Game 7 of the 2016 World Series was one of the greatest baseball of all-time. And the following celebration by the world champion Chicago Cubs and its fans may also go down in history.

Ending more than a century of flops, futility and frustration, the Cubs won their first title since 1908, outlasting the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in 10 innings, Thursday night.

And these photos tell a great story of the how much this meant to the team and the city:
