As any fan who has visited Wrigleyville surely knows, an entire article could be written strictly about the top-10 sports bars in this special corner of the baseball universe – and there would still be plenty of worthy establishments left out. Debates about the "best" sports bar in Wrigleyville often revolve around the Cubby Bear and Murphy's Bleachers – time-honored haunts on Chicago's North Side that deserve all the praise they receive. For the sake of offering a differing opinion though, and because it's the only joint in Wrigleyville that offers an indoor batting cage upstairs for patrons, the choice here is Sluggers, where fans can determine if they really do make more solid contact after they've had an Old Style or three. In addition to the romper room upstairs, Sluggers has featured such celebrity bar tenders through the years as Andre Dawson, Rick Sutcliffe, Goose Gossage and Minnie Minoso.
