Instagram Worthy Spots at Wrigley Field

From sitting in the bleachers on a Friday afternoon to watching the Boys in Blue under the lights for a night game, the action is caught on phones galore in the stands. But outside of snapping a pic of your favorite player, there are fun spots all around the park you can take a picture.

The Marquee

The Wrigley Field marquee

If you choose to enter Wrigley Field through the “Marquee Gate,” you’ll be going in under the big red sign at the corner of Clark and Addison. Originally installed in 1934, the marquee was actually green until 1965, when it changed to the iconic red sign.

Cubs Legends Statues

Around Wrigley, there are four statues of Cubs legends. Near the ticket windows, you’ll find a statue of Ernie “Mr. Cub” Banks. Near Gate D, at the corner of Addison and Sheffield, there are statues of Billy Williams and Ron Santo. At the corner of Waveland and Sheffield, right outside the Bleacher Gate, is long-time Cubs announcer Harry Caray.

Cubs fans placed green apples on Harry’s statue after the 2016 World Series. Harry is famously known for stating, “As sure as God made green apples, one day the Chicago Cubs will be in the World Series.”

Outside the Bleachers

Whether you have a bleacher ticket or not, the great sign painted on the backside of the old scoreboard is always a great photo op. It’s meant to replicate the league flags that fly during games, representing the National League division standings. Just make sure you capture the W flag flying!

Inside the Bleachers

Watching Jon Lester warm up in my custom Lester inspired jersey.

If you get a bleacher ticket at Wrigley Field, it’s not only a great spot to watch the game, but it’s a great spot to take photos. You get an amazing view of the field pointed towards home plate. And, depending on which side you sit in, you get to watch the starting pitchers do their warm-ups.

PRO TIP: if you’re a Cubs fan, try and get a seat in the left field bleachers – the Cubs’ bullpen is underneath and that’s where the starting pitcher will do his warmups with the catcher and our bullpen staff.

The Grandstand

If you’re in the main seating bowl, or the grandstand, this is (in my opinion) one of the best spots within the ballpark for a photo. You get the chance to have the whole field in the background, as well as the iconic (and original) outfield scoreboard.

Bleachers Concourse

If you’re walking along the concourse in the bleachers, there’s some cool stuff along the walls.

In right field, there’s a Wrigley Wall of Fame, featuring former Cubs greats. As you walk along past it, you’ll reach a section of replica brick and ivy. This is your chance to be Albert Almora Jr and jump into the ivy!

If you walk along the left field bleacher concourse, you’ll find a stretch of old Cubs logos. You can find the logos from the start of the franchise until the most recent change.

Clark the Cub

No visit to Wrigley would be complete without a picture with the cutest mascot in MLB, Clark! You can find him in Gallagher Way, by the First Timer’s Booth, and on the Gallagher Way outlook balcony.

Your Seats

Of course, the best way to show you enjoyed the ballpark is a photo from your seats! No matter what area you’re sitting in, there’s no bad view within Wrigley!

I took my cousins to their first game a couple years ago, and of course we had to take some silly-faced selfies.

I hope this photo guide helps you find the perfect spot for a selfie on your next trip to Wrigley Field! We’d love to see your photos, so make sure to tag @ballparkvibes or #BallparkVibes in your post for a chance to be featured on our Instagram!
