Bricks From Wrigley Field, Comiskey Park To Be Installed On Tribune Tower's Exterior
August 10, 2015 at 7:54 AM (PT)
Bricks from WRIGLEY FIELD and old COMISKEY PARK will be installed into the exterior of the TRIBUNE TOWER, home to TRIBUNE MEDIA News-Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO, on FRIDAY (8/14). The bricks will join 148 others from around the world and all 50 states, including from THE ALAMO, THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA, the TAJ MAHAL, and LINCOLN's tomb. The tradition dates back to Col. ROBERT MCCORMICK asking TRIBUNE foreign correspondents to bring back stones from far-flung places for the tower.
The ceremony will be hosted by WGN's BOB SIROTT, who will interview CHICAGO CUBS President of Business Operations CRANE KENNEY and CHICAGO WHITE SOX Chairman JERRY REINSDORF.
