The Friendly Confines of...

Wrigley Field

Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs is a baseball palace. People come from all over to see a game at the so-called 'Friendly Confines' of Wrigley Field. Its charm exceeds its true utility as a major league baseball park. She pales in comparison to the ergonomic and economic advantages of the modern ballparks coming online each year. The facilities are frankly subpar and in fair to poor shape.  But there is a magic, intangible energy that transcends all to make for a near-religious baseball experience.
