Chicago Cubs: Baseball Season is Back!@ Wrigley Field
March 31, 2013 – September 29, 2013
One of the most beloved teams in professional baseball, the Chicago Cubs have produced some of the top players in the league, like Dizzy Dean, Ron Cey, Kerry Wood and Sammy Sosa. Draped with the “curse of the billy goat,” the Cubs hold the record for longest title championship drought, 104 years, of all four professional sports leagues, including the NBA, NHL, NFL and, of course, Major League Baseball.
With the first crack of the bat in 1870, the Chicago Cubs are the oldest professional sports team America. Head to historic Wrigley Field and grab a hotdog and your favorite cold beverage.

The second-oldest ballpark in the major league (after Fenway Park), Wrigley Field has served as the home of the Chicago Cubs since its opening in 1916. A popular gathering spot for tourists and fans, Wrigleyville is the entertainment district surrounding the park with festive bars, world-class restaurants and live music venues. With the most notable characteristic being the ivy covered brick outfield wall, Wrigley Field is also known for the iconic red marquee over the main gate entrance, legendary hand turned scorecard and home field advantage from the unique wind patterns off of Lake Michigan.
