It's a beautiful day in Chicago, as Harry Caray might say.

The Cubs clinched the National League Central title last night, after the Saint Louis Cardinals lost to the San Francisco Giants. It's the first time the Cubs have won the division title since 2008, though they did go to the playoffs last year as a wild card team, and eventually fell to the New York Mets in the National League Championship Series.

Cubs fans hope this year will be different, and maybe, just maybe, their team will finally bring home its first World Series since 1908.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks with Cheryl Raye Stout, sports contributor for WBEZ, about how fans in Chicago are reacting.
