CHICAGO | Originally known as Weeghman Park, Wrigley Field was built in 1914 and is the second oldest ballpark in the majors (after Fenway Park). On April 20, 1916, the Cubs played and won their first game at Weeghman Park. In 1920, the Wrigley family purchased the Cubs from the Weeghman’s and renamed the stadium, Cubs Park.

In 1926, several years after the Wrigley family purchased it, the field was renamed for a final time to Wrigley Field. Over the years, Wrigley Field underwent numerous bouts of construction, the most recent one kicking off after the 2014 season. The park’s bleachers and scoreboard were created in 1937, and lights were added in 1988 for example.

Per tradition, a white flag with a blue “W” (win) or a blue flag with a white “L” is flown above the scoreboard after each game. If you are traveling with or as a baseball fan, be sure to buy tickets to a game or sign up for a tour of the stadium while you’re here.
