    It's also interesting to know that the Wrigley field you know of wasn't the first ballpark to bear the name "Wrigley Field"

    The original "Wrigley Field" was in LA and was home to the PCL Los Angeles Angels

    edit: Just want to add I'm not sure what [MENTION=2726]rsmath[/MENTION] is saying about those 2 parks not being the oldest. I'm fairly certain they are.

    I will be there today.

    Taking my little girl to her first game, so I figured with the festivities and everything else, today is the perfect time to go.

    I was thinking maybe he was being facetious, that's why I said I'll bite.

    where are the baseball historians?

    Sydney Cricket Ground - 1882

    hosted 2 MLB games... this year!!!!

    mindblowing also in that it pre-dates fenway by 30 years and wrigley field by 32 years.

    Hope you have a great time.
    I'm willing to say that though I've never been to Wrigley, that it has always been there for me

    And 1,000s of games were played in older parks that no longer exist.

    A couple games hosted does not a mlb park make.
