Sammy Sosa at bat during a September 2000 away game against the season's eventual National League Central Division champions St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Memorial Stadium.

The 2000 Chicago Cubs season was the 129th season of the Chicago Cubs franchise, the 125th in the National League and the 85th at Wrigley Field. The Cubs finished sixth and last in the National League Central with a record of 65–97.

During this season, the Cubs played in the first game held outside North America on Opening Day. The Cubs played the New York Mets in front of over 55,000 at the Tokyo Dome 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 so 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.
