Each Friday I will dedicate a post to learning more about our favorite ballpark, Wrigley Field.

“If they ever cut the ivy down, they’ll find a hundred baseballs in there.”             -Andre Dawson

-Wrigley Field underwent more changes in 1927.
-Upper deck seating became available, but only in LF!
-The RF upper deck seating was completed a year later.
-In turn, the Cubs soon set MLB attendance records.
-With the help of a pennant winning team in 1929,
  the Cubs set a then-attendance record of 1,485,166 fans!
-On June 27, 1930 the stands were packed with 51,556 supporters.
-It remains the largest crowd ever at Wrigley Field.
