The Chicago Cubs won their first World Series title since 1908 and Baseball America has named them their 2016 Organization of the Year.

"It took time, but the stocked up front office and evaluation staff led to a stocked up major league product, exactly the goal Epstein, Hoyer and Co. set out to achieve," Baseball America said. "With that, Chicago ended one of the longest championship droughts in professional sports, and brought joy back to an enormous fanbase that had not experienced it in a long time."

The Cubs will also be the front-runners to win the World Series in 2017.
