Summary
  • "More than just a lavishly illustrated and highly readable book, Wrigley Field Year by Year, originally published in 2014, is the result of a quarter century of meticulous research. Written by a baseball historian and recognized authority on the "Friendly Confines," this is the first book to detail each year of the storied park's existence. The book covers not only the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Federal League baseball teams in detail, it touches on the Chicago Bears football team, basketball, hockey, high school sports, track and field, and political rallies. It references activities and changes throughout the park and in its neighborhood on Chicago's North Side. In addition to pertinent Cubs statistics, the author's year-by-year coverage includes: A "game of the year" A description of unusual and interesting happenings in the ballpark A quote from the year that best captures its essence Supplementing the year-by-year approach are nine chapters that divide Wrigley Field's rich history into nine "innings" along with informative appendixes that will delight every Cubs fan, from the casual to the obsessed.
