Wrigley Field stands as one of the most remembered structures in baseball. Originally constructed for the Chicago Whales in 1914 the park has been home to the Chicago Cubs since 1916. Wrigley field is the second oldest MLB park still used today. Despite many additions to capacity and remodels, the fields iconic ivy covered outfield wall has never been touched. The field is found in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood which is affectionately called Wrigleyville. Capable of containing 41,000 screaming Cub's fans, Wrigley has earned its nick name as "the friendly confines" at least if you are a Cub fan.
The famous stadium in Chicago is Regley Stadium. The stadium feels good. You will find that the history, friendship and scenery make this trip very worthwhile. The subway is very convenient. You'd better visit it when the Cubs are not in town, because you can enter the dressing room and rest.
The Cubs are horrible but their fans make watching them play at Wrigley Field one of the most fun experiences you'll ever have in Chicago.The general admission bleacher seats are where the action's at. They're actually one of the more pricier tickets too. The fans are rowdy and hilarious. If you arrive after the first inning, it's almost impossible to find a seat, but people are really friendly and will make room if you ask nicely.Make sure you get a Chicago Dog and a Old Style to complete the whole experience.Head over to Cubby Bear or Murphy's after the game to continue the party.If you don't watch the game from inside Wrigley Field, get tickets for one of the rooftop parties across the street. It's also an amazing way to enjoy the game.
its the oldest park in baseball!! What more is there to say? Yeah it helps when we win but history of the park is what should draw crowds even when we lose. The ivy wall and the old score board that has actual people changing the stats and run numbers. The bleacher bums and the seventh inning stretch with different celebs singing "take me out to the ball game". Theres something for every baseball fan here. The history, team, and organisation have made Wrigley Field an awesome experience for all fans. They also have concerts and events outside of baseball so the neighborhood is always happening. Go Cubs Go!
Wrigley Field definitely epitomizes Chicago's nickname of the "Windy City." Even in late summer temperatures, I advise not going to an even game in shorts and a t-shirt. You'll regret it by the 7th inning stretch. The ivy wall is simply magnificent and is a true gem in the history of baseball. The stadium itself reflects where the architecture of baseball stadiums once started at. Old, slanted, low hanging ceilings, and tight seats are a piece of the history at Wrigley Field that any baseball fan comes to enjoy. On a sunny summer evening, this is one of the most picturesque baseball parks in the MLB.
Home of the Chicago Cubs, one of the city's two Major League baseball teams, this stadium was the setting for the 1992 film A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN. The film takes place in 1943, and the stadium's classic charm and vintage stylings were perfect for this period film starring Geena Davis. Despite the team's lack of a World Series title in many, many years, the Cubs traditions are still going strong and are an integral part of Chicago culture. It's always fun to catch a game at Wrigley in the summer.
Wrigley Field is a place like no other. There aren't any cracker jacks, but tons of great food and beverages to enjoy the game just blocks from Lake Michigan. The field is surrounded by fans inside and outside. Don't let the game fool you, the area celebrates the Chicago Cubs all day and night before and after games. If you are visiting Chicago, this is a must stop for baseball enthusiasts and non-baseball fans.
Nothing is more classically Chicago than taking in a summer afternoon baseball game at the "Friendly Confines," where the bleacher seats are waaaaay back in the outfield above the ivy-covered walls. Tip: Ticket prices vary, depending on how talented the visiting team is, but when they aren't very good, you can often get same-day tickets in person the morning of the game.
Wrigley Field is one of the best stadiums in all of America and the second oldest Major League Baseball stadium in use behind Fenway Park in Boston. It may not have all of the bells and whistles, but it represents a historic feel and look to the way baseball was originally played. Ivy on the walls, organs playing memorable baseball tracks, and the seventh inning stretch.
What is not to love about this place. It is baseball at its finest. You may not see the Cubs win but hey the ballpark and surroundings are great. Once you get off the L all you smell are hotdogs, roasted nuts, beer and goodness. It is an event just to hang out outside of the ballpark. Everything about it is majestic. It's a must see ballpark for any fan.
It doesn't matter what team you support - if you are in Chicago during baseball season, a visit to Wrigley is a must. The stadium is one of the oldest, its charm rivaling that of Fenway Park. Besides the iconic Wrigley Field sign, take note of the ivy-covered walls surrounding the field and the rooftop stands that look down into Wrigley from across the streets.
