World Series spotlight shifts to Chicago and Wrigley Field

CHICAGO (AP) A woman in a Chicago Cubs jersey climbed onto a man's shoulders to pose for - what else? - a selfie in front of the cherry-red marquee at Wrigley Field, the second-oldest ballpark in the major leagues.

Not far away, red carnations lay at the foot of Harry Caray's bronze statue and fans were sipping midday beers outside Murphy's Bleachers, where a sign outside the pub declared: "We've been preparing for today for 71 years. Cleveland's in trouble."

Not since Oct. 10, 1945, has a World Series game been played at Wrigley. The Cubs lost 9-3 to the Detroit Tigers that day 71 years ago, but that's ancient history to fans now as the Fall Classic makes its long-awaited return to the ballpark nestled in a North Side neighborhood. As the Series shifts to Chicago this weekend knotted at a game apiece between the Cubs and Indians, it's worth remembering that Wrigley lore has been shaped by change - and changes are plain to see again around here.
