Located in the North Side of Chicago, Wrigley Field is the home of the lovable losers, the Chicago Cubs. It opened in 1914, making it the second oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball (only Fenway Park in Boston is older). Nicknamed the Friendly Confines, Wrigley Field is well worth the place to watch a baseball game.
With the manual scoreboard and the ivy-covered walls in the outfield, it does give that feel of a different time period. There is not much in terms of features, other than the few statues outside the stadium. But the history and atmosphere alone, does more than make up for that, with the appeal of a ballpark from a different era. And one that the retro ballparks try to imitate.
If the Cubs win, there is a sing-a-along of the victory song "Go, Cubs, Go". This song was written and originally sung by Steve Goodman, and very catchy to sing along to.
Some facts about the Cubs... they have not been to the World Series since 1945, and have not won it since 1908. Currently, the longest drought between championships in baseball.
