Less than 24 hours after beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, the Cubs are quickly shifting their focus to their World Series opponent.
The Cubs went to Wrigley Field on Sunday afternoon to gather their things and shortly after departed to Cleveland to prep for their World Series matchup against the Indians.
Cleveland will host Games 1 and 2 on the main stage, with the first game beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. CT. on Fox.
Check out some pictures and videos below of the National League Champions' departure:

Curie senior guard Elijah Joiner ended his recruitment on Sunday by committing to Tulsa on Twitter.
The 6-foot-3 Joiner helped the Condors with the Class 4A state championship in Illinois last season as the combo guard averaged 11.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. Joiner shot 49 percent from the floor, 36 percent from three-point range and 75 percent from the free-throw line on the season.
Forming a dynamic duo with current DePaul freshman Devin Gage last season, Joiner was one of the toughest players to defend in the city. He committed to Tulsa during his official visit to campus this weekend.
"It felt like home and it was a great situation," Joiner said of Tulsa.
Without Gage this season, Joiner will be Curie's go-to player as the Condors will once again be a major threat for a city and state championship. Since Joiner can handle the ball and also play off of it, it'll be intriguing to see how head coach Mike Oliver uses his star in Curie's offense.
Blessed To Become Apart Of A Great Organization, I Would Like To Thank My Parents & My Curie Coaches For Supporting Me Along The Way!!! 🌪🏀 pic.twitter.com/xNcjs8cWHi— Elijah Joiner. (@Slightwork11__) October 23, 2016
