But just how did this fan-filled and bar-centric neighborhood get its name, anyway? The stadium was first erected in 1914 and was referred to as Weeghman Park, named after the club's part owner, Charles A. Weeghman. The field became home to the "Cubbies" (as they are called by fans) two years later, but by 1918, Weeghman had moved over and ceded his shares in the Cubs to chewing gum mogul William Wrigley - hence the new name Wrigley Field was derived. After nearly a decade at the helm, William Wrigley saw it fit to expand the seating capacity of the stadium, relocating the grandstand, adding an upper deck, and putting in bleacher seats along right field. Yes, what would we have ever done without the bleacher seats?!
One of the main explanations for the old-timey charm that Wrigley Field evokes is its stubborn resistance to change. When Weeghman leased the property on which the ballpark stands, he saw to it that no renovations should ever exceed $70,000. While that condition has never been obeyed quite exactly, it did set a precedent for the sense of tradition that enables the old stadium to endure. Take, for example, the fact that Wrigley Field was the last Major League stadium in the nation to install lights. Not until 1988, after the team (and their home base) was sold to the Tribune Company, were floodlights incorporated into the stadium design, enabling it to finally host night games. Finally! Even then, the move was strongly resisted by longtime fans. Wrigley Field was not going anywhere.
Filled with history, Wrigleyville is best known for Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. While summertime in Wrigleyville is an exciting time since droves of fans come to watch America’s favorite pastime, Wrigleyville also has plenty to offer residents year-round. And, since Wrigleyville properties are conveniently served by both the Red Line and a multitude of busses, it is hassle-free to get anywhere in the city.
