Dexter Fowler Is First Black Chicago Cub To Play In The World Series
Submitted by: trimble⚫ 1 year ago in
The last time the Cubs were in the World Series was 1945, two years before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball. As such, until Tuesday night, the Cubs never had a black player play for them in the World Series.
Dexter Fowler changed that, leading off the ballgame at Progressive Field against the Indians.
Good luck, Cubs -- it's about time.
