1. Chicago Cubs Stretching on the Beach!
William Wrigley Jr.’s bought Catalina in 1919 and later gained a controlling interest in the Cubs during 1921. The Wrigley Field on Catalina Island predates the Los Angeles minor league baseball facility of the same name, which didn’t open until 1925. It is technically the first baseball facility to bear Wrigley’s name. The famous Chicago ballpark was first known as Weeghman Park. It was later called Cubs Park and then was renamed Wrigley Field in 1926.
