What is the oldest ballpark in the National League? Whose famous scoreboard is still operated by hand? Whose outfield has ivy-covered redbrick walls ready to snatch home run dreams away from a batter? If you’re a baseball fan and live anywhere in the Midwest, you know the answer. It’s Wrigley Field in Chicago! Just in time to celebrate the April ’14 centennial of its opening day comes W is for Wrigley: A Friendly Confines Alphabet, an alphabetical tribute to the home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. As one of only two major league stadiums to host baseball for at least 100 seasons, Wrigley Field has seen a lot of baseball history, including memorable Crosstown Classics and pitching feats by Kerry Wood, Ferguson Jenkins, and Greg Maddux. From the fans’ chant of “Go, Cubs, Go!” to the “Hey, Hey” home run call of longtime announcer Jack Brickhouse, baseball fans will enjoy reading about the field’s history, features, and momentous events.
