This one is trickier to get into a challenging question: How many WS title(s) have the Cubs clinched at their home stadium? For the one(s) not clinched at home, where were they clinched. Double bouns points if you can name the stadium.

So close but you misspelled the final answer.

They beat the Tigers twice (07 and 08) and prolly won on the road both times.  so none at home.  Before Tiger stadium... I cannot recall the name.  Was that the Baker Bowl or was that Philadelphia?

They only played there for 15 years (you haven't named it yet). Oh, and I have to preclude myself now from giving any more answers.

That's a guess, YOU DON'T KNOW!!!!!!!! HOORAY!!!!

 

According to Wikipedia, it was Bennett Park:  http://en.wikipedia....t_Park_(Detroit)

 

Correct, the Cubs beat the Tigers on the road both years.  Congrats on not overthinking it and wanting to worry about the pre-1900's championships.

We've only won 2 WS. The others were NL pennants. The first WS wasn't until 1903.

I was just looking a little at the 1st WS. Confusingly, there it was an 8 game series. Boston won 5-3 after being down 3-1 early in the series. Why would there ever have been an even number of games?

 

Also, total attendance for the series was 100,429.
