Serving as the home ballpark of the Chicago Cubs since 1916, Wrigley Field is located in Chicago, Illinois, United States of America.
Wrigley Field was built in 1914 for the Chicago Whales, the Chicago Federal League baseball team with the name Weeghman Park and having a seating capacity of 14,000.
It was also named as the Cubs Park from 1920 to 1926. The name Wrigley Field has been selected because of then owner, William Wrigley Jr., the owner of Wrigley Company.
Then in the years 1921 to 1970 it was the home of Chicago Bears of the National Football League. As recently as on 1st January 2009, it hosted the second NHL Winter Classic.Since 1981, the owner of the Wrigley Field has been the Tribune Company which decided not to change the name of the stadium.
The stadium is encircled by Clark and Addison Streets and Waveland and Sheffeild Avenues. The area surrounding the stadium has bars, restaurants and other refreshment places and normally called the Wriglyville.
The Wrigley Field has been nicknamed "the friendly confines" by Ernie banks, hall of Famer. Since 2006 up till now, the seating capacity of the stadium has been 41,118 people.
A white flag is a tradition of the Wrigley Field when the Cubs win. This is called the "white flag time at Wrigley". A flag with "L" is shown on top of the stadium when the Cubs loose and a flag with "W" is shown when they win and if the game ends in a draw, both flags are shown.
Flags are also sold before the game which the fans bring to home and show at the winning of the Cubs. On April 24, 2008, an extra flag with the number 10,000 was displayed along with the winning flag to represent the 10,000th win of the Cubs.

The games at the Wrigley Field had started being watched by people for free who could easily watch the game standing on the roofs of nearby buildings. After a time, this practice became irritating for the people living in the buildings used to watch game for free and they built little bleachers and started charging for watching the game.
This was protested by the stadium authorities who were solved in the end by the agreement between the management and the building owners to share the amount made in this manner. Today Wrigley"s rooftops are a part of the stadium providing varying quality sights depending on the direction of the rooftop.
