CHICAGO (AP) - For Wrigley Field, it really was the party of a century.

Exactly 100 years after the Chicago Federals pounded the Kansas City Packers in the first game at the Chicago ballpark, Wrigley got quite the birthday bash on Wednesday afternoon. Hall of Famers such as Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins and Andre Dawson were on hand, and so were Bears greats Dick Butkus and Gale Sayers.

The Cubs and Diamondbacks went retro, wearing throwback 1914 jerseys, and the famed scoreboard listed Kansas City and Chi-Feds in their place.

Yes, it was quite an afternoon, a day of celebration. A day of reflection, too.

Williams says the celebration gave him goose bumps because Wrigley was his "playground during the summer."
