Dodger Stadium or Wrigley Field (West)

The Dodgers are celebrating their 50th year in LA and there's bound to be all sorts of hooopla. I, for one, am very excited about the preseason games in the Coliseum. Anyhoo, before Dodgers Stadium was a glimmer in O'Malley's eye, the Dodgers minor league team played at Wrigley Field -- where CBS Television City is now. And Franklin Avenue has discovered that their were plans on making the ballpark much bigger.

See the model here. How cool would that have been?

UPDATE: Hmm, maybe I'm thinking of another park. All evidence points out that this park seems to have been located much further south. Anybody (yes, I can be this lazy) remember the name of the ballpark where CBS is now?

UPDATE #2: Thanks to Dave and Mike, Wrigley Field was in South LA, while Gilmore Field is where CBS Television City is right now.

a.) Don't ever associate the Dodgers with any kind of Wrigley Field.

b.) Are you talking about Gilmore Field where The Grove is now?

c.) Happy birthday, time for a makeover.

Hey Miles,
the Los Angeles Wrigley Field was on the South side.
