July 31, 2016: Travis Wood, Chicago Cubs pitcher, was playing left field last night, and made this great catch in the 7th inning as he fell back into the ivy-covered wall in Wrigley Field. He also pitched in the 6th and 8th innings. See this MLB.com page for the full video.
Like Wrigley Field in Chicago, Camden Yards seems to be tucked deeply into its downtown area. (I noticed this view while watching Mark Buehrle get his 200th win against the Orioles.)
They started tearing down the bleachers in Wrigley Field today as part of the big renovation. More photos here at the Chicago Tribune.

I have a subscription to MLB.com, and just turned on the Chicago Cubs game from two days ago, and wow, that park in Mesa, AZ looks just like Wrigley Field, at least the area behind the pitcher, and the dugouts. For a moment I thought they were in Wrigley, before I thought about the whole winter thing.
