The Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday night in Game 6 of the NLCS, to earn their first trip to the World Series since 1945. That puts them one step closer to their first Series title in 108 years, and athletes from across the sports world — plus the Cubbies themselves — took to social media to celebrate.

First things first … from the Cubbies themselves:

Chicago!! You all deserve this! Not done yet! World Series bound!
