Wrigley Field: Chicago Cubs Baseball, Concerts and Tours
Built in 1914, legendary Wrigley Field was originally called Weeghman Park. It originated as home to the Chicago Whales of baseball's Federal League. Two years later, the field welcomed the Chicago Cubs and was renamed Cubs Park. Finally it became Wrigley Field to honor its owner William Wrigley of chewing gum fame. Mingle with the locals and take in a Cubs baseball game, attend a music concert, or enjoy a fascinating guided tour of the oldest ballpark in the National League.
