As the winds blow of the lake and the ivy drifts in the breeze, a hush settles over the crowd before the first pitch of every game. Wrigley is not just the home of the Chicago Cubs, it is a piece of Chicago and MLB history. A destination unto itself, Wrigley holds a special place in our hearts. Whether its the marquee out front, the two guys manning the scoreboard or the throngs of people out on Waveland hoping to catch a home run, a visit to Wrigley for a Cubs Game is a pilgrimage.
Wrigley has been featured in dozens of movies including: The Blues Brothers, Rookie of the Year, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Breakup, A League of Their Own. From Sonic Youth to the Statler Brothers, Wrigley plays a legendary role in music. Wrigley has hosted concerts for Elton John, Sting, Bruce Springteen, Pearl Jam, Kelly Clarkson just to name a few. But when it comes to songs, there is only one on every Cub Fans' mind. In 1982 Harry Caray became the announcer for the Chicago Cubs and started the tradition of his 7th Inning Stretch rendition of Take Me Out to the Ballgame. After Harry went on to the great ballpark in the sky, the tradition continued with daily guest conductors.
Whether you are a baseball fanatic or just looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon, a trip to Wrigley this season will be an adventure. To quote Chicago Cubs legend Ron Santos, "This. Is. The Year!"
