#2 MLB: Wrigley Field (Chicago Cubs)

Wrigley Field

Picture by Jason Hernandez

Wrigley Field in Chicago Illinois is home to the 2016 World Series Champions Chicago Cubs.  Wrigley ranks #2 on my list because of many reasons including history and fan experience.  It is the second oldest ballpark opening in 1914.  Like Fenway, Wrigley is an icon in the baseball world that everyone wants to visit.  It’s appearance is grand stage in the MLB being pushed into a city block in suburban Chicago with no room for expansion.  People flock to Wrigley each year just to say they have experienced a game at one of the greatest baseball fields in the US.  It also added to it’s fan experience and technology recently with an addition of a video scoreboard in left field and other fan resources such as free public wifi throughout the facility.
