Wrigley Field History

This is just a short tidbit in Cubs history.

December 13, 1970
Just a short 32 years ago, the Chicago bears played their final game at Wrigley. The Bears played here starting in 1921.

In their final game here the Bears beat the Packers handedly.

A long time ago the Bears were known as the Staleys. They changed there name shortly after moving to Wrigley in order to associate themselves with the Cubs.

Aside from the Bears, Wrigley was once Northwestern's field. It has also hosted U of I games and the 2010 NHL Winter Classic.
