History of the Cross-Town Classic

You’ll be taking part in Chicago history that spans more than 100 years. The Cubs and White Sox first met on October 9, 1906 for the World Series where the Cubs lost in six games, even though they were favored to win.

In 1985, the teams started an annual Windy City Classic charity game alternating between each stadium every year. Inter-league play in the MLB began in 1997 and the teams routinely play each other six times per year.
