    Wrigley Field is located in Chicago, Illinois and home of the Chicago Cubs since 1916. Before World War I, Charles Weeghman bought the Chicago Whales of the Federal League. Weeghman constructed a new ballpark on the north side of Chicago along Addison and Clark Streets. The stadium was built in 1914 and known as North Side Park until Weeghman named it after himself, Weeghman Park. For 6 years between 1920 and 1926 it was called Cubs Park. The stadium then was renamed after then Cubs owner William Wrigley Jr., Wrigley chewing gum tycoon. Wrigley Field was also home of the Chicago Bears of the National Football League between 1921 and 1970. The area surrounding the park is known as “Wrigleyville”. The area is made up of residential areas, businesses, restaurants and hotels. Better known as "The Friendly Confines", Wrigley Field is one of the 10th smallest ballparks actively used and the only remaining park of the Federal League. The seating capacity is only 41,009. Wrigley is known for its ivy covered outfield wall, the scoreboard which is still turned by hand and the iconic red marquee out front. It wasn't until 1988 did Wrigley Field have lights installed being the last major park to do so. There is a privately funded rehabilitation plan on the table for renovations that was revealed in early 2013. The work is to be completed over five year time period. Too help defray some of the cost of the improvements the team wants to add more advertising. Owners of the rooftop that surround the stadium are afraid it will block their view of the stadium. Before starting construction the team wants the rooftop owners to agree not to take legal action. The project is to begin after the 2013 season.

    • The cl!@#$%@ic American baseball park. Fans flock here each summer to watch the Cubs, drink beer and enjoy the atmosphere. The park looks the same as it probably looked in 1945, the last year the Cubs played in the World Series. Unfortunately, the park la

    • A piece of history, Wrigley Field is a baseball field that, although lacking some of the bling and fancy things other ballparks sport, still manages to fill the park full of fans excited to see a ballgame. The parking can be a little pricey and if possible, a train commute may be a better decision. The concessions are simple but match the atmosphere of Wrigley. A very good bang for your buck and a great ballpark to relax and watch some baseball.
