More than just a lavishly illustrated and highly readable book, Wrigley Field Year by Year, originally published in 2014 and now in its third edition, updated through the 2018 season, is the result of a quarter-century of meticulous research.

Written by a baseball historian and recognized authority on the “Friendly Confines,” this is the first book to detail each year of the storied park’s existence. The book covers not only the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Federal League baseball teams in detail, it touches on the Chicago Bears football team, basketball, hockey, high school sports, track and field, and political rallies. It references activities and changes throughout the park and in its neighborhood on Chicago’s North Side. In addition to pertinent Cubs statistics, the author’s year-by-year coverage includes:
  • A “game of the year”
  • A description of unusual and interesting happenings in the ballpark
  • A quote from the year that best captures its essence

  • Hardcover
  • 400 pages
