    New name for Wrigley

    Me personally do not want a re-name of the ball park. But if it happens what would be a great name for this historic park?

    People would still call it Wrigley. Just as Principal Park is still Sec Taylor

    Re: New name for Wrigley

    Is there a reason that it might be re-named or is this just a hypothetical thing?

    Re: New name for Wrigley

    Yeah, changing the name of Wrigley Field would be a freaking FANTASTIC idea.

    Hey, why not name it Famous Dave's Field? Maybe Applebee's Stadium would be a good one.

    Re: New name for Wrigley

    Gotta keep it wrigley though. Does the tribune own Wrigley or something? I mean they are seperate companies.

    I don't see it happening, but it would be a joke if it happened.

    Re: New name for Wrigley

    It's named after William Wrigley (the gum guy if you didn't know...). Just make the company pay for it now. Then we don't even worry about a name change.

    Re: New name for Wrigley

    Well... I understand that ownership is pending, but I guess I didn't realize that there would be a person stupid enough on this Earth to do something like that.

    Seriously, I think a stadium that historic will never be renamed. If so, I'm sure that person probably wouldn't be on this Earth much longer.

    I think I read something the other day that mentioned that they won't change the name of wrigley. Nor will they get around to selling the team before opening day. Also, Big Z gave up opening day start to Ted Lilly
