The Chicago Cubs' 1906 season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Cubs winning the National League pennant.

Led by new manager Frank Chance, the Cubs dominated the NL. They led the league in both runs scored and fewest runs allowed by large margins. Their record of 116 has never been beaten to date. However, it was tied in 2001 by the Seattle Mariners. In a huge upset, they were beaten by the Chicago White Sox in the World Series. Despite this, the club is still considered one of the greatest baseball teams of all-time.

It included four future Hall of Famers: first baseman Frank Chance, second baseman Johnny Evers, shortstop Joe Tinker, and pitcher Mordecai Brown. Brown finished second in the NL in wins to Joe McGinnity, but his 1.04 ERA set a National League record that has only been seriously challenged once, when Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals finished the 1968 season with a 1.12 ERA.

The offensive star was third baseman Harry Steinfeldt, who led the NL in both hits and RBI.
