Balloons, gifts and cake: The Chicago Cubs threw Wrigley Field a proper birthday party on Wednesday to celebrate the famous ballpark’s 100th anniversary.
Wrigley Field opened under the name of Weeghman Park on 23 April, 1914, featuring a game between the Chicago Federals and the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Cubs and their opponent on Wednesday, the Arizona Diamondbacks, both wore throwback uniforms from that first game — Federals and Chiefs, respectively — and Chicago legends including Ernie Banks, Ferguson Jenkins and Andre Dawson were on hand for a special ceremony. Cupcakes were handed out to fans as they entered. (Photos: David Banks/Getty Images, Tannen Maury/EPA, Charles Rex Arbogast/The Associate Press)
