Today marks the 100th anniversary of the first game played at the corner of Clark & Addison

On the field, the +Chicago Cubs will wear the shirt of the Chi-Feds, the Federal League team that inhabited then-Weeghman Park in 1914 and 1915, and the Diamondbacks will become the Kansas City Packers, the April 23, 1914 opponent, for one day. It’ll be a game to remember, complete with iconic guests, throwback jerseys, giveaways and a whole lot more.
