Mysticism of Wrigley

Wrigley Field is a magical place. It is better than that. It is awe-inspiring. The history of the sanctuary itself runs deep in the ivy. It is one of a kind place for fans to gain the whole experience. While other stadiums have their structural nuances, nothing beats the ivy-covered brick and ‘the basket.’
