Wrigley Field 1929

I found this neat old picture of Wrigley Field on the Library of Congress photo website. The photo was taken in 1929 meaning that memories of their last World Series championship in 1908 were still relatively fresh!

Click on the picture for an enlargement. You'll notice that, back then, fans could sit on the outfield grass.

Speaking of the Cubs and their fans, I see where they sold out the annual Cubs Convention in record time proving that it's never too soon for Cub fans to begin their summer angst! I wonder if Sammy Sosa will still be with the team.
