About Los Cabritos Maldichos

The South Bend Cubs' moniker, "Los Cabritos Maldichos," alludes to the infamous Curse of the Billy Goat. During the 1945 World Series, Billy Goat Tavern owner William Sianis and his pet goat were kicked out of Wrigley Field. In response, Sianis cursed the team, claiming they would never again win a Championship. Against all odds, the curse was finally broken 71 years later when the Cubs won the 2016 World Series.

By becoming "Los Cabritos Maldichos," South Bend honors and celebrates the tenacity and persistence of our local Latino and Hispanic communities, who, like the Cubs, are dauntless in the face of adversity both in the stadium and beyond.

Sobre Los Cabritos Maldichos

El apodo de los South Bend Cubs, "Los Cabritos Maldichos," alude a "The Curse of the Billy Goat" infame. Durante la Serie Mundial de 1945, el dueño de "The Billy Goat Tavern" William Sianis y su cabrito estuvieron retirados de Wrigley Field. Sianis maldijo los Chicago Cubs, clamando que el equipo nunca jamás ganaría otro campeonato. 71 años después, a pesar de todo, los Cubs rompieron la maldición cuando ganaron la Serie Mundial de 2016.

Por convertirse en "Los Cabritos Maldichos" South Bend honra y celebra la tenacidad y persistencia de nuestros jugadores latinos y nuestra comunidad hispana que, como los Cubs, son intrépidos frente a la adversidad tanto en el estadio como más allá.
