On our recent Midwest trip, we were lucky enough to schedule it so we could see a game in the new Busch Stadium (opened in 2006) in St. Louis and in Wrigley Field (opened in 1914).
It's an interesting historical rivalry and comparison between the 2 teams. We all know about the Yankees 26 pennants but in the National League, the team with the most World Series wins in the post-1903 modern era are the Cardinals with 10, the last being in 2006. The Cubs, however, have not appeared in a World Series since 1945 and have not won a World Series since 1908 (See link below - "Curse of the Billy Goat")

Onto Wrigley on Thursday, May 1.
Still has a manually operated scoreboard.
If you've ever been there or seen this on TV, Wrigley is unique in being in the middle of a residential neighborhood with private homes within 50 feet of the outfield walls on Waveland and Sheffield Avenues.
