  • West Side Park & West Side Grounds - Chicago, IL

    One of the more interesting baseball ballparks was West Side Grounds, the home of the Chicago Cubs, May 4, 1894 - October 3, 1915; 21 years. I thought it deserved a thread of its own, mostly to showcase some dazzling photos of it, discovered and polished up by member BSmile.

    Hope you enjoy it! Cheers! Mazzeltoff!
