Each Friday I will dedicate a post to learning more about our favorite ballpark, Wrigley Field.
“To me there’s always been something special about Wrigley Field. I refer to the ballpark as the dowager queen of the National League. I refer to the lights as a lady in black in evening, wearing pearls. Every time I come to this ballpark, I seem to feel and see another image, and, above all, the enthusiasm of the crowd. It’s just a very special place.” –Vin Scully

-The first to build a permanent concession stand.
-Was the lone ballpark to refuse night games for 40 years.
-There’s still no Jumbo Tron, of course.
-There’s still no Cubs mascot.
-Thankfully, the Cubs will resume organ music this year for batter introduction.
