By Any Other Name Trivia

Chicago’s National League baseball franchise has been known by 18 different names establishing a record. They have been the White Stockings, the Colts, the Black Stockings, the Ex-Colts, the Rainmakers, the Orphans, the Cowboys, the Rough Riders, the Desert Rangers, the Pennants, the Recruits, the Zephyrs, the Nationals, the Fourth Nationals, the Third Nationals, the Spuds, and the Trojans. The club owners finally settled on Cubs in 1908, although this hasn’t helped them get into a World Series.
