Editorial Review of Wrigley Field

Wrigley Field

Wrigley Field ranks among the most recognized Chicago landmarks. Not as tall as the Sears Tower, or home to an exceptional sports team (the last World Series win was 1945), Wrigley's claim to fame is its history. As home to nearly 100 years of sporting events, one might think its history would be rife with amazing teams and victories...unfortunately, that's not the case.

Although the Cubs are "lovable losers," it's the park that brings fans in. With the rapid influx of newer baseball stadiums, Wrigley is one of the few remaining ballparks where baseball is in its natural element: Outside, on real grass, without a Jumbotron. Sure, there are a few "limited view" seats where you mainly see a structural support throughout the game, but for the most part, fans are a lot closer to the game than in any other park (the bullpens are practically sitting in the field box seats.

Nothing beats a ballgame from the bleachers, unless of course you like seats with backrests, in which case nothing beats a ballgame from somewhere other than the bleachers. If you don't think you'll be able to get seats right along the first or third base lines, I'd suggest getting upper deck reserve. You always have a full, bird's eye view of the playing field, there are fewer pole-seats, and you reduce your chances of being hit by a screaming line-drive foul ball. Also, seats along the third base line stay in the sun longest...a good thing to know when the cold lake breeze is ripping through the stadium. The beauty of the bricks and ivy and the smell of peanuts and hot dogs make for an unforgettable afternoon.
