In Game

While up until recently the Chicago Cubs had notoriously been absent from World Series contention for years, that didn’t stop Chicagoans from bleeding red and blue and coming out in strong numbers to support their team. Win or lose you’ll find incredible support for the Cubs all throughout the Chicagoland area, although it’s particularly present on the North Side.

The Friendly Confines offer one of the most traditional, neighborhood-style baseball experiences, partly due to their location in Wrigleyville. You won’t find any Ferris wheels or pools inside this stadium, but what you will find is a genuine love and deep loyalty for baseball and the Chicago Cubs.

With its status as a historical landmark, it’s no surprise how much history is represented inside Wrigley Field. Everything about Wrigley Field speaks to its historic past; from the red marquee above the main entrance to the brick walls featuring vintage photo murals celebrating the park’s history, Wrigley Field does a great job of preserving the history of Chicago Cubs baseball.

A trip to Wrigley Field is on the bucket list of any sports fan meaning there is no reason not for you to book your ticket to Chicago today!

Hard-turned Scoreboard

Wrigley Field is one of the last baseball parks (aside from Fenway) that still uses a hand-turned scoreboard, keeping in line with the rest of the stadium’s traditional vibe. Keep track of the score with the iconic scoreboard during your trip to Wrigley.

First Timers Booth

If it’s your very first Cubs game, stop by the First Timers Booth in the right field concourse to get your official first Cubs game certificate. The certificate is a great keepsake that will allow you to remember your first time seeing the Cubs play live and will look great on the mantle.

Bleacher Seats

If you want the true fan experience, then sitting in the bleachers is a must. The fans here are normally die-hard Cubs fans and are not afraid to show their North Side pride. It gets pretty rowdy over here so be ready to party and get there early as seats are unassigned.

The Ivy

All over the outfield walls is the famous ivy that Wrigley Field is known for. As the only ballpark to have an ivy covered wall, Wrigley’s outfield is one of the prettiest in all of baseball. The Ivy starts out as only vines but blooms into the leafy ivy that grows thick and green over the course of the summer.

White Flag After Victories

After victories at Wrigley Field, fans will wave a white flag with a big blue “W” on it commemorating the win for the Cubbies. The expression waging the white flag means something completely different in Wrigleyville, so come prepared to fly the W after a Cubs victory.

Throw It Back

While many fans would love to catch a homerun ball, at Wrigley Field you’ll get pressured into throwing it back if it's from the opposing team. Fans will start to chant “Throw it back!” and you’ll have to decide what to do!

Ballhawks

Thess hardcore, dedicated fans go to all Chicago Cubs games, spring training included, to try and catch a baseball from Wrigley Field. It’s not just standing around, hoping for some luck. No, these fans study hitters’ charts and tendencies against opposing pitchers. This has been a Cubs tradition since their inception in 1914 and continues to add to the experience of being at Wrigley Field.

Fight Songs

  1. Take Me Out to the Ball Game

    As with most baseball teams; Cubs fans sing this baseball classic during the seventh inning stretch but as a tribute to legendary announcer Harry Caray who used to sing it every seventh inning stretch. The song is now usually sung by a celebrity guest from the press box.

    Take me out to the ball game
    Take me out with the crowd
    Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks
    I don’t care if I never get back
    Let me root, root, root
    For the home team
    If they don’t win it’s a shame
    Aahh.
    For it’s one,
    Two,
    Three strikes you’re out
    At the old ball game

    All I need is just one chance
    I could hit a home run
    There isn’t anyone else like me
    Maybe I’ll go down in history
    And it’s root, root, root
    For the home team
    Here comes fortune and fame
    ‘Cause I know
    That
    I’ll be the star
    At the old
    Ball
    Game
