CHICAGO CUBS
 
Home Field:
Wrigley Field
1060 West Addison Street
Chicago, Illinois 60613

Wrigley Field, which was built in 1914, is the second-oldest ballpark in the majors behind Boston's Fenway Park (1912).

Wrigley Field has been the site of such historic moments as:

  • Babe Ruth's "called shot," when Ruth allegedly pointed to a bleacher location during Game 3 of the 1932 World Series ... Ruth then hit Charlie Root's next pitch for a homer.
  • Gabby Hartnett's famous "Homer in the Gloamin' " September 28, 1938, vs. Pittsburgh's Mace Brown.
  • the great May 2, 1917, pitching duel between Jim "Hippo" Vaughn and the Reds' Fred Toney ... both Vaughn and Toney threw no-hitters for 9.0 innings before Cincinnati's Jim Thorpe (of Olympic fame) drove in the only run in the 10th inning ... Toney finished with a no-hitter.
  • Ernie Banks' 500th career home run May 12, 1970, vs. Atlanta's Pat Jarvis.
  • Pete Rose's 4,191st career hit, which tied him with Ty Cobb for the most hits in baseball history ... Rose singled off Reggie Patterson September 8, 1985.
  • Kerry Wood's 20-strikeout affair in 1998.
  • Sammy Sosa's 60th home runs in 1998, 1999 and 2001.
  • the 1947, 1962 and 1990 All-Star Games.

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

  • Weeghman Park was the home of Chicago's entry in the Federal League and was the property of Charles H. Weeghman ... the club was known as both the Federals and the Whales.
  • the cost of building Weeghman Park, which had a seating capacity of 14,000, was estimated at $250,000 ... the infield and outfield consisted of more than 4,000 yards of soil and four acres of bluegrass.
  • the first major league game at the ballpark took place April 23, 1914, with the Federals defeating Kansas City 9-1 ... the first homer in ballpark history was hit by Federals catcher Art Wilson - a 2-run shot in the 2nd inning off Kansas City's Chief Johnson.
  • when the Federal League folded for financial reasons after the 1915 campaign, Weeghman purchased the Cubs from the Taft family of Cincinnati and moved the club to the two-year-old ballpark at the corner of Clark and Addison streets.
  • the first National League game at the ballpark was played April 20, 1916, when the Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-6 in 11 innings ... a bear cub was in attendance at the game.
  • the park became known as Cubs Park in 1920 after the Wrigley family purchased the team from Weeghman ... it was named Wrigley Field in 1926 in honor of William Wrigley Jr., the club's owner.

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 score-by-innings and the pitchers' numbers are changed by hand ... the numbers signaling batter, ball, strike and out, along with "H" and "E" to signify hit and error, are eyelets.
  • no batted ball has ever hit the centerfield scoreboard ... two baseballs barely missed - a homer hit onto Sheffield Avenue (right-center) by Bill Nicholson in 1948, and one hit by Roberto Clemente onto Waveland Avenue (left-center) in 1959.
  • one of the traditions of Wrigley Field is the flying of a flag bearing a "W" or an "L" atop the scoreboard after a game ... a white flag with a blue "W" indicates a victory; a blue flag with a white "L" denotes a loss.

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.

  • the bleacher wall is 11.5 feet high ... the basket attached to the wall was constructed in 1970.
  • Ernie Banks' uniform No. 14 and Ron Santo's No. 10 are imprinted on flags which fly from the leftfield foul pole ... Billy Williams' No. 26 flies from the rightfield foul pole.

Wrigley Field added lights in 1988.

  • the first night game took place August 8 against Philadelphia, but was rained out after 31/2 innings.
  • the first official night game occurred August 9 vs. New York, when the Cubs defeated the Mets 6-4.
  • in 2004, Wrigley Field will be celebrating its 17th year of playing host to baseball under the lights. The Cubs entered the season having played 261 home night games, going 137-124.

CHICAGO CUBS TICKETS
In Demand Tickets is an independent ticket broker engaged in the business of buying and selling first rate tickets at market prices. We are not Ticketmaster, nor are we affiliated with any artist, venue, team, or box office.

In Demand Tickets does not sell tickets at face value. Our ticket prices are often significantly higher than face value and reflect our cost of obtaining quality seating. Tickets are sold at market prices which vary significantly depending on the seat location and demand for the event. All prices are in US dollars.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
Since tickets are a one-of-a-kind item and not replaceable, there are NO REFUNDS, EXCHANGES or CANCELLATIONS. If an event is postponed, tickets will be honored for the rescheduled date. New tickets will not need to be issued. If an event is cancelled without a rescheduled date, you will receive a full refund for the amount that you paid for the tickets (minus the original shipping charge) - provided the tickets are returned to our office within 30 days of the original event date. In Demand Tickets will not issue exchanges or refunds after a purchase has been made - or for lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed tickets. When you receive your tickets, please keep them in a safe place. Please note that direct sunlight or heat can sometimes damage tickets.

We attempt to maintain our inventory in real time but this is not always possible. In rare circumstances, the tickets you order from this web site may no longer be available. If this happens, you will be contacted by one of our representatives to discuss alternate seating choices.
ORDER FULFILLMENT & SHIPPING

Chicago Cubs Tickets

When you find Chicago Cubs tickets that you would like to purchase, they can be purchased online via our encrypted safe and secure server. Or if you prefer, you may order by phone. For faster service, please order online.

Your order for Chicago Cubs tickets will be fulfilled within 6-24 hours unless it was placed after hours or during an office closure or holiday. If this is the case, your order will be filled on the next business day. All tickets will be sent via Federal Express. Occasionally, the tickets you order may not be in hand yet. If this is the case, we will ship the tickets out to you the same day that we receive them.

The shipping address must be the same as your billing address at which you receive your credit card statement. If your Chicago Cubs tickets need to be sent to an address other than the billing address we will need to obtain a fax written authorization from you. If you would like to do this, you should contact one of our representatives. This is for your own protection, as we are doing everything we can to combat online credit card fraud.



COMPETITIVE PRICING
While price shopping our competitors online, please keep in mind that it has become common practice for many online brokers to tack on a substantial "service charge" on top of their posted ticket prices. Many times this service charge will not show up until you are at their final checkout page. They don't want you to notice it! We feel this practice is very unethical. Therefore, the price per ticket you see on our web site is the final price you pay. Our only additional charge is for FedEx shipping. No additional service charges. No convenience fees.
