West Side Grounds Plaque

Another Flickr fave. This site is just south of the Eisenhower Expressway and was home to the Chicago Cubs from 1893 to 1915. The 1906 World Series between the Cubs and White Sox was played here and the Cubs’ last world championship was won here in 1908. A total of four World Series were hosted here.

I have not been to this site, but would like to go sometime soon.
