ew places have a richer baseball history than Chicago: The Cubs 107-year World Series drought ending on a rainy night in Cleveland, Babe Ruth calling the shot and Cincinnati’s Fred Toney and Chicago’s Hippo Vaughn staging the only-ever double no-hitter through nine hitless innings.

or Cub Fans, home is Wrigley Field, baseball’s second oldest ballpark, where fans come to see the ivy-covered outfield walls, the classic hand-operated scoreboard and the marquee at Clark and Addison. The first Cubs game was at Weeghman Field on April 20, 1916.

Four years later, the club was acquired by William Wrigley, Jr. who created the iconic place we know today. Things stayed mostly the same until 1988 when the Cubs decided to install lights at Wrigley Field with their first night game played on August 9th.
