To find out what was at Wrigley Field in 1945, the last World Series appearance of the Cubs, check out my Cooter's History Thing blog.
TRIANGLE PROPERTY: (northwest corner outside ballpark). Rising from this spot is a building that will house Cubs offices and retail shops. Eventually there will also be an open-air plaza where the Cubs plan to host events.
BLEACHERS: Bleacher seats were added during the ongoing construction, and the walls along Waveland and Sheffield avenues were moved outward, allowing for additional seats and features.
SCOREBOARD: The iconic manual scoreboard now stands between two new video boards -- 3,990 square feet in left and 2,400 square feet in right, The old board still functions, however, and features manual scoring.
OUTFIELD: The ivy remains, but one key difference is the baskets, which were added in 1970.
