Chicago Whales Grounds Crew Jacket
History: The Whales played in Weeghman Park now known as Wrigley Field. The team won the 1915 pennant by .001 percentage points on a statistical fluke even though the Terriers actually won one more game. Their manager was Joe Tinker of the legendary Tinker-to-Evers-to Chance infield.

GROUNDS CREW JACKETS
Brush up on your Whales history before you wear this jacket because people will be asking you about it.
You can wear this jacket all year, although I recommend layering an EFF hooded sweatshirt underneath in the winter. These jackets are roomy, comfortable, weatherproof (mostly), and extremely durable. I get great comments everywhere I go. It looks great, and there's a great story behind every team. Make sure you know that the Whales were not a previous name of the Cubs, but that Weeghman Park was the original name of Wrigley Field.
