The Chicago Cubs season of 1982 involved the team's fifth-place finish in the National League East at 73-89, 19 games behind the eventual National League and 1982 World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals. For the first time in more than a half-of-a-century, the Cubs were not owned by a member of the Wrigley family. Instead, it was the first-full season for the Cubs under the ownership of the Tribune Company.

Offseason

November 15, 1981: Steve Macko, a promising prospect passes away after a short bout with testicular cancer.
