Chicago Cubs: Wrigley Field’s rich history

Along with this idea, the third reason why Wrigley is elite is its fantastic history. The story of how 106 years ago, a ballpark was constructed on Chicago’s north side to accommodate the new Federal League team, the Chi-Feds (or Whales) is one that Cubs fans know well enough to tell time and time again. The ballpark cost about $250,000 to build and finally opened in 1914. Considering it is still around as the Wrigley Field we know today, it was a good investment.

Renovations have been made for the ballpark to keep up with the times, and they haven’t been too drastic so that Wrigley could keep its old-timey charm. These renovations include both electronic jumbotrons and clubhouse/facility upgrades. From the iconic red marquee over Wrigley’s main entrance to the iconic ivy-covered walls, what isn’t there to love about Wrigley’s history?

There you have it, three reasons why Wrigley Field is elite. Still don’t believe me? Hopefully, next season life will go back to normal and you will be able to go and see for yourself. Trust me; there’s nothing better than the green ivy, $12 beers and a beautiful sunny day.
