Purple Marquee

In preparation for the upcoming Northwestern-Illinois football game this Saturday, the Wrigley Field Marquee is being painted purple.

Most people don't realize that the marquee hasn't always been red.  While red was the original color, the marquee was actually paint blue, along with other parts of the facade of the ballpark, as a way to commemorate the 1962 All-Star game. 

Just some interesting info to pass along.
