Chicago is the third largest city in the United States, located in northern Illinois, on the western shore of Lake Michigan, 90 miles south of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Chicago is one of two cities, along with Boston, MA, to have hosted major league baseball without interruption since the foundation of the National Association in 1871; in its case, the city's first major league team, the Chicago White Stockings, is the direct ancestor of today's Cubs. The city is home to the University of Chicago, Loyola University of Chicago and DePaul University. Traditionally, the Cubs represent the north side of Chicago, while the White Sox represent the South side.
