No More Trump Street Sign, yet the Cubs Javy Baez May Get One!

From DNAinfo Chicago: With Cubs fever burning at City Hall, an alderman Tuesday proposed naming a street in honor of Cubs infielder Javier Baez.

Ald. Roberto Maldonado (26th) wants to designate the west side of West Luis Munoz Marin Drive near a replica of Wrigley Field known as Little Cubs Field in honor of the Puerto Rican ball player set to take the field for the Cubs in the sixth game of the World Series Tuesday in Cleveland.

Baez was named the National League Championship Series co-MVP.
