More Wrigley Field: Happy 100th Birthday | Lesser known facts

One hundred years ago today, the first ever game at Wrigley Field was played. It was called Weegham Park at the time, but while the name has changed (it was Cubs Park from 1920-26), the building has remained mostly the same.

Countless Hall of Famers and other great players have played in Wrigley Field, so let's look at the various statistical leaders in the ballpark's history. With a huge assist from the Baseball-Reference Play Index, here are the all-time Wrigley Field leaders.
