History:

Since 1916 Wrigley Field has been the home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. It is named after the club's owner and founder of the chewing gum brand P.K. Wrigley. In December 1943, Norge Ski Club from Fox River Grove first contacted him with the idea of holding their annual ski jumping event, which was also staged at the Soldier Field football stadium a few times, at Wrigley Field. He finally agreed and after sorting out some administrative issues and building a 27 meter-high scaffold, two comeptitons could be held on January 23 and 30, 1944, attended by 6,000 and 5,000 spectators, respectively. Overall winner was Torger Tokle, one of America's best ski jumpers during that time.
