Overview

Take a three-dimensional tour of the second-oldest ballpark in the Major Leagues. Located in the heart of Wrigleyville, a bustling Chicago neighborhood filled with bars and restaurants, Wrigley Field is one of the most popular destinations for baseball fans, especially fans of the Cubs, who began playing at the ballpark in 1916. Built in 1914, Wrigley Field is known for its old-fashioned charm and timeless traditions. The ivy planted in 1937 still grows on the outfield walls. The original scoreboard remains intact and the score is still changed by hand. After a game, a flag flies on top of this scoreboard—white with a blue "W" for a win, blue with a white "L" for a loss—so that commuters rolling past the ballpark on the El can instantly know the outcome of the game. Featuring historical photographs of key games and notable players, a complete chronology of Wrigley Field, and a full-color pop-up of this architectural gem, Wrigley Field: A Ballpark Pop-Up Book is a must-have for any fan of the Chicago Cubs, baseball, and architecture alike.
