The 2000 season was the Chicago Cubs 128th in their franchise history. The Cubs played in the first game held outside of North America on Opening Day. The Cubs played the New York Mets in front of over 55,000 at the Tokyodome in Japan. The Cubs won the game by a score of 5-3.[1]

Offseason

  • October 5, 1999: Lance Johnson was released by the Chicago Cubs.[2]
  • November 22, 1999: Todd Van Poppel signed as a Free Agent with the Chicago Cubs.

Regular season

On May 11, 2000 Glenallen Hill was responsible for a memorable event in the annals of Chicago Cubs baseball lore. On that day Hill became the first, and thus far only player, to hit a pitched ball onto the roof of a five-story residential building across the street from the left field wall of Wrigley Field.

Sammy Sosa, despite hitting only 50 home runs (he had hit over 60 the previous two seasons) won his only home run crown.
