For Chicago Cubs fans, perhaps the easiest way to approach the 2014 season is: "Let's Get this Party Started." While it's certainly true that every team might be a World Series champion right up through Opening Day, the only guaranteed winner this year will be Wrigley Field. Home to legendary games -- from Babe Ruth's famous calling his home run shot, to Chicago Bears' NFL championships, to a fan's interference that curtailed the Cubs' most recent chance to win the World Series, Wrigley is the beloved home for generations of fans in one of the greatest sports cities in the country. Almost in counterpoint to the often heart-breaking Cubs, Wrigley Field has never failed to disappoint. From the iconic scoreboard and ivy-covered outfield wall, to the neighborhood that has the ballpark at its heart, to the indescribable, unforgettable afternoons in the sun (especially as Wrigley was the last stadium to bring in lights for night games), there are countless golden moments for Windy City residents, as well as baseball fans everywhere. And this book shares all those historic plays and games, day by day.
