Most modern stadiums are constructed to limit the effect wind can have. However, Wrigley Field was opened in 1914 and its game-altering winds are part of its charm.

At Wrigley, the average total for all games since 2005 is 8.50 runs and the average runs scored are 8.93. This is in line with the averages throughout the majors but lookout if the wind starts blowing.
