Corcoran: The 10 greatest games in Wrigley Field history

From Cliff Corcoran at SI.com on April 23, 2014, with mention of SABR member John Thorn:

Over the last 100 years, Wrigley Field has hosted five World Series, three National League Championship Series, four Division Series, the 1998 wild-card tiebreaker game, three All-Star Games and seven no-hitters and been the home park of 33 Hall of Famers. It was the site of one of baseball’s most enduring legends, some of its greatest individual performances and one of the most controversial moments in postseason history.
