Wrigley Field is known as "The Friendly Confines," and a more accurate adjective can not be imagined for this comfort food of ballparks. Nestled in the Lakeview neighborhood on the near north side of Chicago, Wrigley Field has been the home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team since 1916. For decades, the ballpark was a sleepy venue, as the Cubs struggled to be competitive. But the Wrigley Field universe changed in 1984, and the community surrounding the ballpark became legendary.By Kent McDill
