Cubs to Mark Wrigley’s 100th Year Anniversary

Chicago baseball and football greats who played at Wrigley Field and a ceremonial pitch using a 100-year-old baseball will be part of the park’s 100th-year birthday party.

The Cubs announced that Hall of Famers Ernie banks and Andre Dawson will be among the former Cubs who will participate next Wednesday. Bears Hall of Famers Dick Butkus and Gale Sayers will be among those representing the team that called Wrigley home for decades.

Sue Quigg, the grandniece of Charles Weeghman, the Cubs owner who built Wrigley, will throw out the first pitch with a ball her grandmother used in a ceremonial first pitch a century ago. The Cubs and the Arizona Diamondbacks will dress as the two teams that played that day, the Chi-Feds and the Kansas City Packers.
