Wrigley Field was built in 1914 and is the second oldest ballpark in the major leagues behind Boston's Fenway Park (1912). Originally known as Weeghman Park, Wrigley Field was the site of Babe Ruth's historic "called shot", when he allegedly pointed to the outfield bleachers during the 1932 World Series and then hit Charlie Root's next pitch for a homer.
One tradition of Wrigley Field is the flying of a flag bearing "W" or "L" atop the scoreboard after a game. A white flag with a blue "W" indicates a victory; a blue flag with a white "L" denotes a loss. Wrigley has the smallest seating capacity in the National League
