Wrigley Field is the second oldest baseball stadium in the United States. Home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team, Wrigley Field was established back in 1914 under the name of Weeghman Park, after Charles H. Weeghman who was once the owner of the property where the Wrigley Field now stands. The name was changed to Wrigley Field in 1926 in honor of William Wrigley, Jr. who was the owner of the Chicago Cubs. The baseball stadium had become the site of some of the most historic moments in baseball history. One of the most memorable historical moments happened during the 1932 World Series where Babe Ruth pointed to a bleacher before hitting a homerun for the Chicago Cubs and sending the baseball flying towards the same bleachers he initially pointed.
Today, Wrigley Field stands as one of the most beautiful ball parks in the country and has become one of the most popular tourist destinations for travelers visiting the city of Chicago, Illinois. Visitors can have the opportunity to get inside access to many parts of the stadium such as the Cubs Clubhouse through the different tours that are offered within Wrigley Field, offering travelers a glimpse into the rich history of the stadium. Only a limited number of people can join a tour scheduled for a particular day, which is why it is a good idea to make sure that you book your tour tickets well in advance. Bear in mind also that while many of these tours continue even during scheduled ball games, certain areas may not be accessible to the general public.
