Chicago’s Wrigley Field celebrates its 100th birthday this year, and to celebrate The Friendly Confines has put on its birthday best. Originally built in 1914 as Weeghman Park, the stadium was renamed Cubs Park in 1920, and then permanently changed to Wrigley Field in 1926. The century old ballpark has gone through multiple renovations over the decades, and is expected to begin another series of major updates and alterations this year that will expand bleachers, add signage, and perhaps include a new outdoor plaza. The iconic and beloved stadium is one of the oldest in professional sports, and although the Lovable Losers haven’t won a World Series in over 100 years, the landmark ballpark remains one of the most enduring symbols of Chicago’s North Side. Join us as we take a quick look back at the earliest years of Wrigley Field.
