    Wrigley Field is located in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois and is home to the National League's Chicago Cubs. The area surrounding the park is known as “Wrigleyville”, comprised of neighboring residences, businesses, restaurants and hotels. Rooftop seats are located on nearby buildings, allowing fans to view games outside of the ballpark. Known as the "Friendly Confines", Wrigley Field is one of the smallest ballparks in the Major Leagues, with a seating capacity of 41,009. It is the last remaining ballpark of the old Federal League (pre-cursor to the National League). Wrigley is known for its ivy covered outfield wall, a scoreboard still operated by hand and an iconic red marquee sign, welcoming fans to the ballpark.

    History

    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 was 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. It was the last Major League stadium to install lights, in 1988. A long-awaited $500 million dollar renovation project is underway. The bleachers will be expanded, seven new outfield signs will be installed and a new scoreboard will be located in right field.

    • 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.
