PHOTO: Bleachers constructed in Wrigley Field in 1937

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

The following photo was posted Sunday morning by the excellent Twitter account @MLBcathedrals:

That would be Wrigley Field -- home of the Cubs, if you're new to this baseball thing. Those are the center field bleachers, being constructed all the way back in 1937. The number of current ballparks that were even around in those days is two, Fenway Park and Wrigley Field.

The photo at this point in time seems rather appropriate, as the Cubs are getting set to undergo a massive renovation project of the historic ballpark, making the building as modern as they can without having to totally tear it down.
