It is easy to assume that beautiful Wrigley Field has always been the home of the Chicago Cubs. Dating back to the early 20th Century, Wrigley Field has been the quintessential "Green Cathedral" with its beautiful brick and ivy walls and vintage scoreboards. The fact is... Wrigley Field was never built to house the Chicago Cubs. When Wrigley Field made its much heralded debut in 1914, the Cubs were not the team playing on the field that day, nor would they be for the first few years of Wrigley Field's existence. The Cubs were very much at home right... here.
