The Chicago Cubs history begins back in 1870 with the "Chicago White Stockings." In 1969 the first professional baseball team the "Cincinnati Red Stockings" was formed with quick success. Many new teams began to form with the single goal of defeating them. On April 29, 1870 the White Stocking of Chicago played their first game, which was an exhibition, against the St. Louis Unions dominating them by them 47–1. The now all-pro baseball team was being financed by businessman William Hulbert and in 1871 became part of the first professional league in the country named the " National Association of Professional Base Ball Players." Over the next few years the league was plagued with "contract jumping" and poor organization leading Hulbert to form the stronger and more ethical National Baseball League.
Over the next year, the Chicago Cubs tickets would be the pride of the city, the team quickly rose to the top of the league. Under Hulbert, they could win pennants in 1880 and 1881 before he passed away. Al Spalding went on to take over the team and finances. In 1902 Spalding sold the club to Jim Hart, who quickly renamed his team the "Chicago Cubs." Between 1905 and 1920 the first major sports dynasty was created, the Cubs would go on to win four pennants and two World Series with Frank Chance as acting player-manager. Now in the period of baseball's "Golden Age" a minority owner of the franchise and owner of the Wrigley Company (the Chicago-based chewing gum manufacturer) William Wrigley Jr . would begin mass accumulation shares eventually gaining majority ownership. Wrigley quickly changed the ballparks name from Weeghman Park to its current name, Wrigley Field in what is historically looked at as the first corporate branding in sports.
