The Chicago Cubs have a rich history.
Some of it includes great moments with a lot of winning and success.
Most of it centers around futility and losing.
Regardless, the history of the Cubs runs deep.
In fact, despite their long history of snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory, there is some good history the Cubs can claim other than their 2016 World Series championship that broke “the curse.”
According to MLB Vault on Twitter, the Cubs have actually hosted the most Sunday Night Baseball games.
Wrigley Field has hosted an MLB-high 55 Sunday Night primetime ballgames.

Cubs Make History With Sunday Night Telecast
Now there’s something the Cubbies can claim.
Who would’ve thought that the Friendly Confines had hosted the most Sunday Night games?
ESPN has aired plenty of games between the Cubs and their archrival St. Louis Cardinals, and we know Wrigley Field has had their share of them, but so has Busch Stadium.
Here we are though learning a little bit of unique history, with the Friendly Confines on the North side of Chicago having hosted the most Sunday Night games.
What’s better than a little primetime baseball on a Sunday night at Wrigley Field, one of America’s oldest and most beloved ballparks?
There’s so much history at Wrigley Field, some good, some bad.
This is a little unique history if there ever was some.
Fenway Park and Dodger Stadium are close behind with 54 and 51, respectively.
This is a number that could easily fluctuate as the season goes on, but for now, Wrigley Field takes the cake for most Sunday primetime baseball games.
