Overview

Created in conjunction with the Chicago Cubs, a unique tribute to baseball's most beloved landmark

Wrigley Field brings to life and pays tribute to one of baseball's greatest ballparks. The story of this revered park, from its opening in 1914 through today, this revered park's story is gloriously depicted in picture and in word. This up-close-and personal record, proves why Wrigley is sacred ground to millions, from its manually operated scoreboard and the climbing green ivy of its outfield walls, to the raucous bleacher bums and bright days bathed in sunlight, massaged by Lake Michigan's soothing breezes. It is a refuge, it is a haven, it is an escape­­from the workweek or from homework. Produced with the full cooperation of the Chicago Cubs, Wrigley Field pays fitting tribute to the ballpark's extraordinary nine decades­its history and unique features, its vitality, its people, and its greatest moments­­through intimate, enthralling perspectives from the team's official photographer, Stephen Green, as well asteam and private archives. Wrigley Field is the most stunningly visual and complete book ever on this beloved park that is like no other.

Stephen Green began photographing Wrigley Field under an Illinois Arts Council grant in 1981. The next year, he became the Cubs' official photographer, a position he has held ever since. Before joining the Cubs full time, he was a staff photographer for the "The Oprah Winfrey Show." He lives in Oak Park, Illinois.

Mark Jacob is an assistant news editor at the Chicago Tribune and coauthor of The Game That Was. He lives in Skokie, Illinois.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"Welcome to the friendly confines of Wrigley Field," reads a sign above the visitors' dugout at the Chicago stadium, but visitors to the historic field seldom feel confined at all. In fact, the Cubs' home grounds evokes a reverence that only Boston's Fenway Park and New York's Yankee Stadium can rival. Photographer Stephen Green and writer Mark Jacob have created a fitting paean to Wrigley's 89 years of major league service. "Mr. Cub," Hall of Famer Ernie Banks, provides a nostalgic foreword.
Library Journal
With its famous ivy-covered outfield walls and old-fashioned, hand-operated scoreboard, Wrigley Field is regarded as a jewel of a ballpark by baseball fans across the nation. That this ballpark, which opened for business in 1914, is situated in the midst of a Chicago neighborhood gives it added ambience and charm. The Cubs may be perennial losers, but Wrigley Field itself has always been a winner. As Cubs legend Ernie Banks states in the book, "I won every time I stepped onto the grass at Wrigley Field." Most Cubs fans will find this book of photographs by Green, the official Cubs photographer since 1981, a beautiful depiction of Wrigley. The anecdotal text by Chicago Tribune assistant news editor Jacob covers all the colorful characters that have inhabited Wrigley, from players to ushers to everyday fans. This book will fly off the shelves at most Chicago-area libraries and is a good bet for large sports collections elsewhere.-Paul Kaplan, Lake Villa Dist.
