Wrigley Field Bleachers

Wrigley Field View From The Bleachers
Wrigley Field View From The Bleachers
The experience of watching a game from the Wrigley Field bleachers is an experience like non-other in baseball. It's like going to the Grand Canyon, you can explain the experience to someone, but never really get a taste of what it's like until you've experienced it for yourself in person.

Wrigley Field Rooftops
The Wrigley rooftops are another unique part of Wrigley Field. The stadium is located in a residential district with many buildings behind the stadium that are high enough to have a view of the game. Of course, these seats won’t show up on the Wrigley Field seating chart!

Wrigley Field Bleacher Fans
Wrigley Field - Truly "The Friendly Confines"!
Wrigley Field was built in the early 1900's so it is not state of the art. Small seats and the second deck are reinforced with beams that do obstruct certain views. The good news is that all of those beams do have small television sets nearby in case you do miss a play.

Murphy's Bleacher's right outside the park is a good place to get decent food, have a good place to meet up with friends and talk some baseball before and after the game.

Wrigley Field Scoreboard

Cub fans are often categorized into 2 types
  • The ones that are there for the party atmosphere 
  • The diehards with the Cubs gear on and scorecard in hand 
For the partiers, the bleachers and rooftops are the way to go. The bleachers are directly in the sun so most of the guys go shirtless in the summer and the girls don't wear much more. The tradition of course if you catch an opposing player's HR is to throw the ball back. If that is a souvenir you do not wish to part with, rumors abound that substitute baseballs can be found to keep the one that was caught.

Get to the game early if you want a good bleacher seat, general admission (no assigned seat) is in place for nothing more than a wooden bench with nothing for back support.

The rooftops are another unique part of Wrigley. The stadium is located in a residential district with many buildings behind the stadium that are high enough to have a view of the game. Of course, these seats won’t show up on the Wrigley Field seating chart!

There are often a minimum of 5 to 10 people in the party to reserve these tickets and they are not cheap ($100 to $150) per person, however the price does include unlimited food and drink (yes, alcohol) which of course also leads to quite a party atmosphere. Personally, I haven't been to a rooftop game yet, but I definitely hope to soon.

Wrigley Field Information on.... Parking, Wrigleyville and other traditions

Ok, I'm a diehard Cubs fan, but parking sucks!! Wrigley Field is located in a residential area with bars and restaurants but no parking lot for the stadium. Again, getting to the game early will help your chances of finding a decent spot that is not too expensive (typical is $25 to $50) and if you need to get somewhere after the game, make sure you ask about easy out.
