Before Wrigley Became Wrigley
"The scrambled construction of Weeghman Park in 1914 is at the heart of Before Wrigley: The inside story of the first years of the Cubs' home field. The book will explore the early years of Wrigley Field, when it bore a different name and housed a different team. Sean Deveney has mined documents and resources from baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, as well as the Chicago History Museum, to supplement the reports in newspapers and magazines of the day, giving readers a behind-the-scenes look at the origins and birth pangs of the park"-- Provided by publisher
