Wrigley Field

Wrigley Field, built in 1914, was originally named Weeghman Park. The park became the official home of the Chicago Cubs in 1916 and went through several name changes before finally being named after gum magnate and then-owner of the Cubs, William Wrigley Jr., in 1926. Today, the stadium is the second oldest and fourth smallest active baseball stadium in the country.

Fun Fact: Wrigley Field did not host a night game until 1988.
