This was then inaugural year for the Season Ticket Holder Open House at Wrigley. Last week there were two nights to pick from and you needed to be preregistered for the event. We were allowed to bring with us one person, so I chose my husband. At 5pm we were able to enter the ballpark under the marquee to sign in. I had to show ID and we both got a wrist band. Then for the next 3 hours we had free roam of Wrigley. They had four locations to get to, but mostly just so that we all did not end up at same area at same time. There were not many people here, so you could get the pictures you wanted and not get in someone's way.
This was one of the best events I have ever attended at Wrigley. I had participated in Meet the Team have a Ball and the regular tour, but this surpassed them.
Our first stop was the new bleacher patio area. This is where Jody Davis was signing autographs and you could meet your ticket rep. There were ushers/security stations at various points to keep you in check, but honestly this was so low key just took our pictures for us. No one said hurry or told you not to go there. We were free to roam.
Photo ops were everywhere and they had your name scrolling on the scoreboard throughout the night in alphabetical order. They opened up the United Club and had a buffet of park fair (hotdogs, pop, chips, ice cream etc.)
The visitor clubhouse was not open, but the Cub's was. So we went down to the clubhouse. When I took the tour last year it was a home game, so I missed this on the tour so this was a first for me.
The final stop was the press boxes. Again all access. At one point a guy leaned out the window and said, "A one, a two, a three!" It was pretty cool!
After the complete tour we went back down to eat ice cream in the seats down by the dugout. No one said you need to leave, we just left when we were done. They said this was the first year they tried this and I'd say it was a huge success.
In the future if you become a season ticket holder I would HIGHLY recommend you attend this!!!
