A throwback to 1945.
A lot has changed since the last time the Chicago Cubs made it to the World Series back in 1945.
Of course, there is the obvious list that would be true if applied to a number of teams: the internet, smartphones, GoPro cameras etc.
But as TheBlaze TV host Stu Burguiere pointed out Monday, a number of things that might not be first to come to mind also didn't exist 71 years ago, including: Cubs' manager Joe Maddon; the National League Championship series, which the team won to get to the World Series; the Los Angeles Dodgers, whom the Cubs defeated in the NLCS (they were the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1945); and the NBA.
Here are 16 more things that didn't exist in 1945:
State of Alaska
State of Hawaii
International air travel
Mr. Potato Head
