Winter Pics of Wrigley Field

Today I strolled through the neighborhood and snapped a few wintery shots of Wrigley Field.

It’s another bone-chilling January day, the wind howls and the neighborhood quietly hibernates while waiting for Opening Day.

Other than a few construction workers on Sheffield, not much is going on around the ballpark, not even a trace of the ever-present tourist in front of Wrigley’s red marquee at Clark & Addison.

It was a different story last winter as Wrigley’s entire playing surface underwent a makeover.

Although, at some point this off season the infield will be reworked again, courtesy the NHL after the Winter Classic.

Other than the days getting longer, this is Wrigleyville for the next three months…come back Cubs!

    Thanks for the winter shots. I can’t say I’m jealous of Chicago under all that snow, but I will be when summer rolls around and the costumed sausage start roaming Waveland Avenue!
