Chicago CubsWrigley Field Where do the Chicago Cubs play baseball?Wrigley Field
Wrigley Field is a historic baseball park located on the North Side of Chicago, Illinois and is the home of the Chicago Cubs of Major League Baseball (MLB). It first opened in 1914 as Weeghman Park for Charles Weeghman's Chicago Whales of the Federal League, which folded after the 1915 season. The Cubs played their first home game at Wrigley on April 20, 1916, defeating the Cincinnati Reds with a score of 7–6 in 11 innings. It's the oldest park in the National League, and is the second-oldest in the majors after Fenway Park. Wrigley Field is known for its ivy-covered brick outfield wall, the unusual wind patterns off Lake Michigan, the iconic red marquee over the main entrance, the hand-turned scoreboard, its location in a primarily residential neighborhood with no parking lots and views from the rooftops behind the outfield, and for being the last Major League park to have lights installed for play after dark, in 1988. Between 1921 and 1970, it was the home of the Chicago Bears of the National Football League, and was also the home of the Chicago Cardinals (now Arizona Cardinals) of the National Football League between 1931-1938.
