The complete list of all the Cubs thank you tweets after the World Series (in chronological order):
Aroldis Chapman is the first out of the gate to give thanks to Cubs fans for the World Series win. He’s ecstatic that he didn’t go down with the blown save in game 7.
Although Munenori Kawasaki was not on the World Series roster, he was in the dugout for the entire playoffs as the team cheerleader. He is the second Cub to tweet out thanks. All in Japanese.
