Wrigley Field is the center of a bustling community of diehard Cub fans. Wrigley
field was built in 1914 and can hold up to 41,000 spectators. Outside the ballpark
on any given game day there are beer-guzzling, hotdog eating fans around the park
and in surrounding neighborhoods. Wrigley Field has been the center of baseball
for the north side of Chicago and will be for many years in the future.
Wrigley Field was built in 1914. Wrigley Field was designed by Zachary
Taylor Davis for a federal league team, the Chicago Whales. When the park was
first built it was called Wheeghman Park because the owner of the whale’s last

season, 200 seats were added behind homeplate. After the 2005 season, 1,800 seats
were added to the bleachers making the capacity a little over 41,000. During the
2007 off-season, the whole field was replaced because Wrigley Field was known
around the Major Leagues to have one of the worst playing surfaces in all of
In 2009, the Tribune Company sold the Chicago Cubs to the Ricketts’ family
for $900,000,000. The Rickett’s first order of business was to win the
World Series which has not been accomplished in 103 years for the Cubs. Wrigley
Field is more of an adult oriented ballpark now, but in the future the Rickett
family plans on building an attraction suitable for children as well. There have
been discussions on building a Chicago Cub’s Hall of Fame so that on off days
and during the off season fans can come to the ballpark and still experience
When the Ricketts family bought the organization there were rumors

Today, America’s third-oldest MLB venue is looking to challenge the MLB’s legacy as the most traditional sport by selling the naming rights to the field in Chavez Ravine, which has been home to the Los Angeles Dodgers since 1962. In this manner, the stadium would be “X Corp.” Field at Dodger Stadium, various sources have disclosed. The naming rights have been available since early spring with a soliciting cost of $12 million per season.
There are many question about how the great game of baseball originally started and how it has grown to become Americas game that so many of us enjoy so much as little kids until till we die. Baseball is one of the only games today where the rules of the game have stayed the same since a guy named Abner Doubleday first evolved the game in 1845. Then he went on to be a Civil War hero shortly after as the game of Baseball became Americas beloved national pastime.

Not only has Dodger stadium hosted baseball games, it has also held concerts and soccer tournaments and even charity events. The stadium had a huge capacity of 56,000 that makes it the largest than any other MLB stadium. Many fans see Dodgers stadium with admiration because of everything it has accomplished and has been part of. What many do not realize is the suffering of many families that had to take part in order for the Dodgers to have a home and this stadium to take place.
The league was the brainchild of Philip K. Wrigley, president of the Wrigley chewing gum company, and owner of the Chicago Cubs National League baseball team. Wrigley was concerned with the future of baseball. The major leagues had already lost more than half of their players to the military. The minor leagues were even harder hit. By the start of the 1943 season, more than 3,000 minor leaguers had joined the service or the war effort. Only nine of the nations 26 minor leagues had enough men left to play.
In October 1945, the St. Cloud Baseball Association was formed to field a class “C” minor league baseball team for the Northern League. After a name-the-team contest that had over 568 names submitted, the name “Rox” was picked. The St. Cloud Rox played their first season in 1946 at a hastily built ballpark located at Division Street and 27th Avenue. In this first season, team was made up of mostly military veterans and castoffs from the Minneapolis Millers; they played so well that they won the league championship with the best mark in the Northern League’s history.
When asked to describe a baseball the first word generally voiced is white, and before April 15, 1947 that is exactly what the game of baseball was, white. “There is no law against Negroes playing with white teams, or whites with colored clubs, but neither has invited the other for the obvious reason they prefer to draw their talent from their own ranks” (‘42’). These were the feelings of people living in 1947, that blacks and whites were not meant to play baseball together. Then, why decades earlier, had there been an African American in the league? In 1887, an African American Pitcher, George Stovey, was expected to pitch a game with Chicago, however, the first baseman, Cap Anson, would not play as long as Stovey was on the field. Other
The start of the game of baseball is unknown, but some people believe they know when it started. The game of baseball believes to start in England. The start of baseball was around 1760, the game was called Rounder. Rounder had the same rules as baseball today, but it had its difference. The biggest difference was that a fielder had to throw the ball at the runner to get them out. The game changed in 1845. A group of people got together to talk about the game. They wanted to make the game safer. They changed the rules of the fielder. He would not throw at the baserunner anymore; they must tag the baserunner with the ball. The equipment changed as well when they made the rule change. They started to use a harder ball.
Did you hear about the Cubs winning the world series and how they ended a 108 year world series drought and broke the "Billy Goat Curse." The Chicago Cubs are A Major League Baseball team that is in the Central National Division. The Chicago Cubs are my favorite baseball team. Before you say this but no I am not a bandwagoner, I was a fan for like 5 years and back then they sucked. What I will be writing about is The History Of the Chicago Cubs and who has been apart of the Cubs and where they are at now.
The Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles serves as the home ground of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the city's Major League Baseball franchise. The 56,000 seat stadium first opened its doors on the 10th of April 1962, when the Dodgers played in their new home ground in front some 52,564 spectators.The Dodger Stadium was designed by O'Malley and New York-based architect and civil engineer, Emil Praeger as well as Edward Ficket, a Californian architect. The Dodger's Stadium is also the first privately funded ballpark since the construction of the Yankee Stadium in 1923.
The 1919 White Sox--the White Sox of Eddie Collins, Eddie Cicotte, Dickie Kerr, Ray Schalk, Buck Weaver and "Shoeless" Joe Jackson--are considered by baseball historians to be one of the greatest teams ever to take the field (Solomon). The “Black” Sox were the major favorites of the World Series against the Cincinnati Reds. Chicago had the better pitching, the better hitting, and the better fielding, but they somehow lost. The “Black” Sox lost in eight games, back in 1919 the only playoff series they was the World series so they played a max of nine games. A few months after the Reds won the World Series, on December fifteenth, 1919, “The New York World published an explosive article by Hugh Fullerton suggesting the the World Series was fixed” (Linder).
Perhaps you think of the Cubs as cheaters because of Sammy Sosa, but the Cubs organization did not know or have anything to do with this cheating unlike the New England patriots. The Cubs are a liked team because they don’t do much wrong. Although they don’t win many games, they still have one of the largest fan bases in the MLB. Joe Maddon the cubs manager is not a yeller, or a man who overworks his players, in fact they had a pajama party to celebrate their team's no-hitter a couple of weeks ago.

Adding indoor baseball, softball, and football fields in Eldred will bring the people together. The indoor fields will let people practice all year, they can bring in money for Eldred and even Otto- Eldred High School, and they can help our school sports programs.
