Wrigley Field Events
In addition to Cubs home games and the concerts mentioned above, Wrigley Field has played host to a number of other events in its history.
From 1921 to 1970, the Chicago Bears called Wrigley Field home before moving to Soldier Field.
On a slightly different take on the events theme, one of the traditional “events” of every Cubs home games has been the singing of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” during the seventh inning stretch. Over the years, it had been led by the late broadcaster Harry Caray but after he died in 1998, guest stars have been tagged to lead the crowd in the singing. Those stars have included Ryne Sandberg, former pitcher Mike Krukow, former longtime Cubs first baseman Mark Grace, former Houston Rockets star Tracy McGrady, Chicago Blackhawks forwards Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, comedian Jay Leno, NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon, singers Ozzy Osbourne and Eddie Vedder, boxer and actor Mr. T, actor and lifelong Cub fan Gary Sinise and actors Tom Arnold, James Belushi, and Bill Murray.
