Overview


More than just a lavishly illustrated and highly readable book, Wrigley Field Year-by-Year is the result of a quarter century of meticulous research. Written by a baseball historian and recognized authority on “the Friendly Confines,” this is the first book to detail each year of the storied park’s existence. The book covers not only the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Federal League baseball team in detail, it touches on the Chicago Bears football team, basketball, hockey, high school sports, track and field, and political rallies. It references activities and changes throughout the park and in its neighborhood on Chicago’s North Side. In addition to pertinent Cubs statistics, the author’s year-by-year coverage includes:
• A “game of the year”
• A description of unusual and interesting happenings in the ballpark
• A quote from the year that best captures its essence
Supplementing the year-by-year approach are nine chapters that divide Wrigley Field’s storied history into nine “innings,” along with informative appendixes that will delight every Cubs fan, from the casual to the obsessed. The book’s easy-to-use format and wealth of information make it a resource that readers will turn to again and again.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“There has never been a book that chronicled the entire history of a baseball park by the year. That is, not until now. . . Every Cubs fan should savor it: 25 years worth of research, 100 years worth of history, a lifetime worth of memories. Wrigley Field Year by Year will help fans to relive those moments and perhaps learn about some new ones along the way.”—Bleacher Report
