The Cubs wore their 1994 alternate throwback uniforms for Sunday's series finale with the Baltimore Orioles:

The Cubs are celebrating the 1990s decade at Wrigley Field as the Wrigley 100 celebration continues on Chicago's North Side.

As most baseball fans will remember, 1994 was the strike-shortened season, limiting the Cubs to just 113 games.

The Cubs were 49-64 in those games, finishing the year fifth in the National League Central.

Sammy Sosa (25 HR, .884 OPS), Mark Grace (.784 OPS) and Ryne Sandberg anchored the lineup that year, though Sandberg was limited to just 57 games due to injury.

Steve Trachsel (9-7, 3.21 ERA) was the ace of a pitching staff that also included Kevin Foster, Mike Morgan and Jim Bullinger.

A trio of lefties — Randy Myers, Dan Plesac and Dave Otto — held down the fort in the bullpen.

Otto will sing the Seventh Inning Stretch at Wrigley Sunday.
