Wrigley Field (Los Angeles)

(7)

Wrigley Field was a ballpark in Los Angeles that served as host to Minor League Baseball teams in the region for over 30 years. It was the home park for the Los Angeles Angels during its run in the Pacific Coast League, as well as its inaugural season as a major league team. The park was designed by Zachary Taylor Davis, who had previously designed both Chicago ballparks: Comiskey Park and Wrigley Field. The ballpark was also used as the backdrop for several Hollywood films about baseball, as well as the TV series Home Run Derby.HistoryCalled Wrigley's "Million Dollar Palace", Wrigley Field was built in South Los Angeles in 1925, and was named after William Wrigley Jr., the chewing gum magnate. Wrigley owned the first tenants, the original Los Angeles Angels, a Pacific Coast League team and their parent club the Chicago Cubs. In 1925, the Angels moved from their former home at Washington Park, which was also known as Chutes Park. Wrigley's Major League home (Wrigley Field) in north Chicago was named for him later, in 1927.
