Scoreboard: The scoreboard at Wrigley Field is only one of two manually operated scoreboards still in existence today at a major league ballpark. It was constructed in 1937 and except for a few modern touches, such as the electronic message board, it remains just as it was in 1937. The clock atop the scoreboard was added in 1941. The score-by-innings and the pitchers' numbers are still changed by hand. The numbers signaling batter, ball, strike, and out, along with "H" and "E" to signify hit and error, are eyelets. The scoreboard also uses a unique method to track pitchers being used in out of town games. The SP on the scoreboard stands for starting pitcher and the RP stands for the current relief pitcher in each game. The numbers 1 thru 16 are used to indicate the actual pitcher being used for each out of town team. To find out which number has been assigned to a pitcher, fans should refer to an official Wrigley Field scorecard.
Scoreboard Greetings: Personalize your visit to Wrigley Field by purchasing a special message on the Wrigley Field centerfield message board. Messages are posted in the middle of the 5th inning. Each message will only be displayed once, so be sure to have your camera out and ready! Space is limited and messages are on a first-come, first-served basis. Dates sell out quickly so we recommend placing your order a minimum of five business days in advance of the requested game. Proceeds benefit Chicago Cubs Charities. To order a Scoreboard Message, go to http://cubs.com/scoreboardmessages.
