The 2016 World Series was between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians, the first meeting of those franchises in postseason history.
The Cubs defeated the Indians 4 games to 3 to win their first World Series in 108 years. Game 7, an 8–7 victory in extra innings, which marked the fifth time that a Game 7 had gone past nine innings, was the first to have a rain delay which occurred as the tenth inning was about to start.
The Cubs, playing in their eleventh World Series and their first since 1945, won their third championship and first since 1908. It was the Indians' sixth appearance in the World Series and their first since 1997, with their last Series win having come in 1948. Cubs outfielder Ben Zobrist was named the MVP
