Chicago Cubs are being forced to give up their World Series title. Cleveland
Indians fans have rioted across the country in protest of the 2016 World
Series. Despite knowing the rules of the game prior to playing, they were
unhappy they lost and demanded the outcome to be changed. They could be
heard chanting #NotOurWorldSeriesChampion all across America.
Even though the Cubs won 4 games and the Indians only won 3, since both
teams scored 27 total runs throughout all 7 games, they are being declared
When questioned, Commissioner Manfred stated, "We felt as though it was the
right thing to do for the nation. What kind of example would Major League
Baseball be setting if we expected the adults who play this game, and their
fans, to gracefully accept defeat? Instead of creating a bigger divide
between the Cubs and Indians, MLB is confident that the Cubs will gladly
share their victory with the Indians."
