The Ballpark

Wrigley Field in Chicago, home of the Cubs since 1916, is MLB's second-oldest ballpark. Famous for its ivy-covered brick outfield walls and iconic red marquee, this historic stadium offers an intimate baseball experience. It features a manually operated scoreboard, unique rooftop viewing from surrounding buildings, and a seating capacity of around 41,000.

Despite modern renovations, it maintains its old-time charm, including being one of the last to add lights for night games in 1988. Nestled in the Lakeview neighborhood, Wrigley Field is not just a sports venue but a cultural landmark deeply embedded in baseball history and American culture.
