Wrigley Field's Most Memorable Moments

Over the last 102 years, Wrigley Field has hosted five World Series, four National League Championship Series, six Division Series, the 1998 wild-card tiebreaker game, three All-Star Games and seven no-hitters and been the home park of 33 Hall of Famers. It's been the site of one of baseball's most enduring legends, some of its greatest individual performances and one of the most controversial moments in postseason history. In its over a century of use, Wrigley has been a multi-purpose venue — the NFL's Chicago Bears used it from 1921-70 — but it is best known for baseball. Here are some of the most memorable moments at Wrigley Field, starting with the Cubs first game at the ballpark then known as Weeghman Park in 1916.
