A part of history for the 1908 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs started in the small town Muscotah, Kansas, the hometown of Hall of Fame shortstop Joe Tinker. “Joe Tinker Day,” an event organized by the Kansas Sampler Foundation, featured descendants of the Cubs shortstop, a vintage baseball game and a billy goat.
With the billy goat in attendance, the Tinker relatives made their attempt to reverse the curse on the Cubs. As the Cubs’ World Series drought ends in 2016, the Tinker descendants can finally be relieved.
