    Cubs fans name their kid Wrigley Fields

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070923/...lpark_namesake

    CHICAGO - His parents say he can go by his middle name when he's old enough to decide.

    For now, the newborn will be known by his first name: Wrigley.

    And his last name: Fields.

    His parents are Paul and Teri Fields of Michigan City, Ind. They are no surprise fans of the Cubs, who have played at Wrigley Field since 1916. The Fields planned the name for years before their son's birth.

    Wrigley Alexander Fields was born Sept. 12 at an Indiana hospital.

    Cubs spokeswoman Katelyn Thrall said the name may be a first. The team has no record of other children named Wrigley, although there have been some children names Zambrano and Ryne after Cubs stars Carlos Zambrano and Ryne Sandberg.

    So the Park family should name their child Great Americanball?

    What a mean thing to do to a kid.

    I hope he ends up a White Sox fan.

    It could be worse. He could be Texas Ranger.

    The kid could grow up thinking he was named after gum.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I wasn't really in the mood to laugh, BCubb, but you made me anyway.

    Or his brother Walker.


    I have heard of Cubby fans naming their kids Clark or Addison, but no Wavelands or Sheffields yet.

    Actually, the birth certificate has a typo. They wanted to name the kid after their favorite dog park down the road from the stadium, named Wiggly Field, but the nurse filling out the form got it wrong. They just made up the story so that the kid doesn't feel bad.

    Wrigley is bad enough, but someone actually named their kid Zambrano? That's just cruel.

    Thats what I was thinking. It's one thing to name your kid after a field, which I don't think is too bad. But Zambrano? This guy is one of the worst in baseball at controlling his attitude. Name your kid after a spaz?

    How many kids have been named after a known cheater like Barry? Watching this week in SF, I have thought it was ridiculous how many kids had signs that said they love Barry or he is their hero. It's like a love is blind scenario. What a terrible role model. He is one of the best power hitters ever, if not the best, but he is like the OJ of baseball, we all know he is guilty.
