The Diamondbacks Will Wear Kansas City Throwback Uniforms

Look at that. That's a damn fine uniform. Unis from a century ago were usually pretty great—white or gray, high socks, uncluttered chest logo, and my favorite, logo-less caps. The Diamondbacks will suit up in these bad boys next Wednesday, and they're going to look great, but it's more than little weird that "throwbacks" … » 4/18/14 1:55pm Yesterday 1:55pm

Watch Bill Murray And Harry Caray Kick Off The Cubs' First Night Game

Twenty-five years ago today, the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies played the first-ever night game at Wrigley Field. After having only played day games since claiming the park as home in 1916, the Cubs finally succumbed to pressure from MLB, which threatened that if the team ever won a pennant they'd have to… » 8/08/13 4:55pm 8/08/13 4:55pm

The Sky Above Wrigley Field Today Was Spectacularly Haunting

This afternoon's Astros-Cubs game finally got started a little while ago after a rain delay that lasted for 3 hours, 18 minutes. This photo might have been doctored a bit by MLB's Instagram or HDR filter, but still: Who knew those eerie, dark clouds that always seem to hover above Wrigley Field could look so… » 6/21/13 6:29pm 6/21/13 6:29pm

Both Chicago Teams Played In The Fog, And It Was Gorgeous

We noticed last night that Wrigley Field looked like it had been transported to Silent Hill. (This being the Cubs, maybe Superman 64 is the better analogy.) But the fog covered the South Side too, and the morning-after photos are equal parts eerie, quirky, and beautiful. » 6/11/13 10:02am 6/11/13 10:02am

Wrigley Field: Home Of The Pantomimed Blowjob

Remember this jackass? He made his way onto TV in a late-night, nothing game in Chicago and made blowjob gestures for a whole inning. He had at least two competitors during today's Diamondbacks-Cubs action today at Wrigley Field. » 6/02/13 6:08pm 6/02/13 6:08pm

If The Chicago Cubs Want Their Big Renovation, It's Time For Them To…

Wrigley Field, the goat-themed cemetery where the past 105 seasons of Chicago Cubs baseball are buried, is finally getting an overhaul befitting the task at hand. The Ricketts family that now owns the Cubs apparently wants to win more games, and to spend money to do so. Presently the team doesn’t earn money it could if … » 4/06/13 3:28pm 4/06/13 3:28pm

Suburban Mayor Willing To Give The Chicago Cubs 25 Acres Of Land To…

Brad Stephens is the mayor of Rosemont, a village less than 20 miles outside Chicago, and he's making a run at the Cubs. While the Cubs continue to fight with the city of Chicago over various restrictions in place, preventing the team from optimizing its cashflow, Mayor Stephens has said the Rickets family is welcome… » 3/18/13 9:13pm 3/18/13 9:13pm

Drawn By The Scent Of Death And Decay, Coyotes Prowl Wrigley Field

Night. The pack slips silently out of the den, drawn by an unnameable urge deep in the midbrain. The streets are deserted, the twolegs having retreated to the safety of their dwellings. The world belongs to them now. The waxing moon rises above the low red brick houses of Wrigleyville. Light enough to see and not be… » 11/26/12 2:50pm 11/26/12 2:50pm

Sign Of The Apocalypse

For nearly two decades now, Sports Illustrated has stirred the tea leaves to discern a weekly Sign of the Apocalypse. Deadspin salutes the magazine's ongoing effort to head off the end of times, but declines to quietly cede to SI the scoop on the biggest event in world history. » 9/22/12 3:52pm 9/22/12 3:52pm

Cubs Fan's Scoreboard Marriage Proposal Runs While His Girlfriend's In…

Poor Greg. All that money, time and emotional torture that went in to taking out a scoreboard message at yesterday's Cubs game asking his girlfriend to marry him. And then, after a half-hour long bottom of the fifth, just as the proposal was set to run, the girlfriend leaves her seat. (Perhaps she was getting hot dogs… » 7/31/12 12:35pm 7/31/12 12:35pm

Jeff Garlin Struggles Through "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" Before…

Actor, comedian, and Cubs fan Jeff Garlin took issue with Tigers fans at Wrigley today for being "irritating" or, more accurately, existing. "There are just so many of them too," he told Len Kasper and Bob Brenly in the Cubs broadcast box. He decided to hang out for a while after the rough performance above. Shortly… » 6/14/12 7:35pm 6/14/12 7:35pm

Enough With The Mystical Cubs Bullshit, Please

Can we talk about this? Can we talk about everything wrong with the notion that if the Cubs are to succeed—if they are to finally, evitably win a championship—they have to first tear down Wrigley Field? That there is bad juju on Waveland and hoodoo on Sheffield and black alchemy on Addison and maybe some cursed pirate… » 5/15/12 4:05pm 5/15/12 4:05pm

Some Dude Got Arrested For Breaking Into Wrigley Field And Ripping Ivy …

Michael Vite, 24, allegedly entered the ballpark through a construction area around 7:30 a.m. on New Year's Day. Police say he "ran onto the field and pulled some ivy off the outfield wall." Which is pretty lame compared to this. [CBS Chicago; h/t to Disco Choo] » 1/03/12 12:21pm 1/03/12 12:21pm
