Nov. 2 proved a historic day for Chicago natives, baseball fans, and members of the Bellarmine community.

That day, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years. This victory broke the infamous “curse” and crowned Bellarmine’s first World Series champion–Jon Lester, class of 2002.

It was not much of a surprise to those that knew Lester. He has proven his talent and work ethic throughout his decorated career.Over three games, he allowed a total of 6 runs in 14 and two-thirds innings with a total of 14 strikeouts.

While Bellarmine celebrates this achievement, it also wonders what Lion will stand on top of the world (series) next.
