Wrigley Field Memories

“Wrigley Field and Fenway Park are the last two of a dying breed. It’s baseball. When you walk into Wrigley Field, and you come up from the concourse, and you look down at that green field and the ivy, that, to me, is what baseball is all about. It’s not the new stadiums and all the big stuff. That’s all great. ... But when you look at those fields like Wrigley Field, that’s what baseball is to me. It’s a nostalgic old look and knowing guys like Babe Ruth were in the batter’s box and Ernie Banks and Ron Santo and Billy Williams. All these guys have played in that ballpark. That’s what baseball is—the old with the new.”  — Ron Coomer, Cubs radio analyst
