Chicago Cubs – Wrigley Field Aerial View

Wrigley Field Aerial View Wrigley Field is the second-oldest ballpark in the majors behind Boston’s Fenway Park (1912).

Originally known as Weeghman Park, Wrigley Field was built on the grounds once occupied by a seminary.

The Wrigley Field bleachers and scoreboard were constructed in 1937 when the outfield area was renovated to provide improved and expanded seating … the original scoreboard remains intact.

The original vines were purchased and planted by Bill Veeck in September 1937 … Veeck strung bittersweet from the top of the wall to the bottom, then planted the ivy at the base of the wall.

Wrigley Field added lights in 1988.
