How many home ballparks have the Cubs enjoyed since their inception in 1876?

 

Quadruple bonus points if you can name all of them.

 

Octuple bonus points if you convince someone in the BNFL to trade for Marlon Byrd.

I'll give you it, West Side Grounds

 

That gives us 3.  I'll give Spriggs until noon CDT to pop in with the answers.

 

Edit: Dangit, Westside Park is a separate one from West Side Grounds.

 

We are at 4 - Wrigley, South Side Park, West Side Park, West Side Grounds

 

The remaining ones are gonna be tough.

The list is full seasons and actual homes:

 

Wrigley Field/Cubs Park/Weegham Park

West Side Grounds

South Side Park II

West Side Park I

Lake Front Park I & II

23rd Street Park

 

7 Parks, so unless one of these is just the same park renamed:

 

The Cubs have had six home ballparks in their franchise history dating back to 1876.

 

Is wrong.

 

EVERYONE GETS CALENDAR POINTS TODAY!!!

Guess I didn't miss much aligning optics all day. At least it looks like I get some points.

I just like the word "Octuple".
