Final Jeopardy Explanation – Friday, May 5 2023

The Chicago Cubs were still known as the Chicago Orphans until 1902, when they adopted their current name. The team needed a new name because their star player, Frank Selee, moved to manage the Boston Beaneaters, and players left for the cross-town foe now known as the Chicago White Sox. The team was purchased by James Hart with the intention of renaming it.

In 1902, the team’s new owner, Charles Murphy, changed the name to the Cubs to celebrate the team’s inexperienced and young players. The name “Cubs” was chosen to conjure up thoughts of tiny bear cubs, and it was an appropriate option for a team that was in the process of rebranding.
