Various Cubs tried their best answering trivia questions about 1908, with highly amusing results

In case you weren't aware, the Cubs won the National League pennant for the first time since 1945.
They'll square off against the Indians in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night (7:30 p.m. ET air time | 8 ET game time on FOX) in a matchup of two teams that haven't been in the Fall Classic in quite some time
You may also recall that the most recent Cubs team to win a World Series did so way back in 1908 -- but do you know which team those Cubbies beat? Or, perhaps, who the president of the United States was at the time?
How many baseball teams existed? Which of those teams did grizzled 39-year-old catcher, fan favorite and clubhouse heroDavid Ross play for back then? 
OK, that last question was something of a joke -- but all of these were levied at various Cubs during Monday's World Series media availability, among them Ross, Jason Heyward, Tommy La Stella and Dexter Fowler. View all the amusement (and great guesses!) in the clip atop this post.
