Wrigley Field in Chicago

Built in 1914, Chicago's Wrigley Field is one of the oldest and most iconic Major League Baseball stadiums in the country.

The park, known for its traditions and charm, has been the home of the Chicago Cubs for over a century.

The renowned ballpark, located on the North Side of Chicago is known for its ivy walls, raucous fans, and manual scoreboard.

With a seating capacity of 42,495, the ballpark was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2020. The affable fans garnished the stadium the nickname 'Friendly Confines,' which was popularized by baseball legend Ernie Banks. The Cubbies are also known for famously singing Harry Caray's seventh-inning stretch rendition of 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame.'

The fieldhouse, designed by brothers Zachary Taylor Davis and Charles G. Davis, got its name when chewing gum tycoon William Wrigley Jr. acquired the stadium in 1921. Prior to this, the park was called Cubs Park.

Wrigleyville is one of the only ballparks where neighborhood residents can watch the games from their rooftops.
