Chicago Cubs

Originally formed as an amateur team less than a decade after the Civil War (1874), the Chicago Cubs joined the National League for its initial season in 1876. They were originally known as the Chicago White Stockings and they were also later known as the Colts and Orphans but for the 1902 season they had changed their name to the Cubs.
