    Zima Park at Wrigley has a great ring to it... :)

    I was thinking something more appropriate like "Wrigley Field sponsored by Delta Tau Delta"

    What will the naming rights to Wrigley be worth on the open market?

    $5 mil/yr, $10 mil/yr, more...less?

    It's been named after a gum company for 75 years.

    They should go back to the original name, Weeghman Park.

    Big difference. The guy owned the team and basically built it as it is today.
