Naming Rights On America’s Most Recognizable Field (Sorry Boston)… To Be Sold?

with 2 comments

I guess Sam Zell, the CEO of the Tribune Co, which owns the Chicago Cubs, said he wouldn’t hesitate to sell the naming rights to Wrigley Field. It’s just a matter of time before we see the Tampax field.

Wrigley field was called Cubs Park from 1920 to 1926 and then was renamed after the team owner and chewing gum baron, William Wrigley Jr. Now, I know that the Cubs have spent a boat load in past years on a bunch of pitchers that have gotten hurt or haven’t panned out (Mark Prior, Kerry Wood, Carlos Zambrano?). But, c’mon! You don’t need the money. Everyone in America wants to go see a game at the park that offers the possibility of an outfielder losing his teeth against the brick and ivy while chasing down a well hit ball.

Sam Zell. You should be ashamed to even allow such a thought into your head.
