Wrigley Field "Steels" Home as New National Historic Landmark

Last week, the U.S. Secretary of the Interior, David L. Bernhardt, designated Wrigley Field in Chicago as a National Historic Landmark. In 2015, more than 880 tons of steel, fabricated by AISC certified member Lenex Steel, were installed in the outfield to expand the bleachers and build new video boards.   

"The historical significance of Wrigley Field is interwoven into our nation's story and a key part of what has become America's beloved pastime for over a century," said Secretary Bernhardt. "It is with great enthusiasm that I designate this iconic national treasure, the site of many legendary events, innovations, and traditions in baseball history, as a National Historic Landmark."
