Chicago Cubs to fix Wrigley Field mural


The Chicago Cubs have a mural dedicated to the history of Wrigley Field. One picture includes Charles Lindbergh visiting Comiskey Park in 1927. This mistake has gone viral over social media and resulted in the Cubs acknowledging the error. Cubs spokesman Julian Green stated:

“As part of our 100th birthday celebration, we’ve worked to source a significant number of photos from outside archives to highlight this wonderful milestone all season long. Unfortunately, the photo featuring Charles Lindbergh was incorrectly labeled in a collection of historical photos we recently acquired for our Cubs Archives. We are working to update the artwork and plan to have a new mural installed soon alongside the other great historic images on Waveland and Sheffield.”

The mistake was discovered by Cubs blogger Floyd Sullivan, who moonlights as a local historian.

The historical pictures were originally placed on walls around Wrigley Field to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the stadium.
