So I live in a pretty small town of only 3,700 people. This summer our local media discovered that the Cubs actually played our American Legion team in 1923 (http://wrmj.com/?p=15885). The Cubs won 9-2.
When I first heard this I thought, "Well that's pretty cool. Too bad it couldn't happen now!" Well... apparently somebody in our legion got ahold of the Cubs and are trying to schedule a "rematch" for (I think) the 100 year anniversary of the game. According to what we were told, the Cubs showed interest in doing something, but nothing is official or even close to that stage yet.
Now you're probably thinking, "What you were told? It's probably just some rumor running through town." Well, it could be. BUT, I am one of the coaches of our Legion team, and I'm probably going to be taking over the program in the next year or two. We were told, from the head honcho of our legion, about the conversations with the Cubs. So that adds a little bit of validity...
Needless to say, I will be coaching this legion team until, at least, 2023. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that this actually happens
