Celebrate 100 Years of the Cubs at Wrigley Field
Commemorative scorecard honoring 100 years of Cubs baseball at Wrigley Field.
On Wednesday, the Cubs will celebrate a Century of the Cubs at Wrigley Field (which originally hosted the Federal League’s Chi-Feds and Whales from 1914-15) and both the Cubs and visiting Reds will wear 1916 throwback uniforms for the game. The two teams matched up April 20, 1916, in the Cubs first game at the ballpark, then named Weeghman Park. Up to the first 30,000 fans will receive a 1916 Chicago Cubs Replica Throwback Jersey. Cubs Hall of Famers Fergie Jenkins, Ryne Sandberg and Billy Williams will lead the seventh-inning stretch. The game’s scorecard, in-game video board graphics and entertainment will highlight the team’s 100 years of history at Wrigley Field.
The Cubs have worn a commemorative patch featuring a version of the team’s 1916 logo on home uniforms throughout the season, and the logo has been featured on base jewels and as a stamp on baseballs used during 2016 home games. Bases used July 6 will be adorned with custom base jewels featuring the Cubs’ and Reds’ 1916 logos.
