Now I usually could nail these but i'm not real sure about this one.I know for sure a few,but others I have no clue.Here's what my thoughts are:

Angels:First played in Wrigley,which they inherited from Los Angelas of the Pacific Coast League.Then shared Chavez Ravine with the Dodgers while waiting for Edison Field to be built.

Blue Jays:As far as I know the Skydome was their first.I know i'm wrong but i'm just not sure about this one.

Cubs:I think they played in West Side Park,not sure though.

Brewers:County Stadium I thought.

Expos:Jarry Park

Pirates:Forbes Field,I thought.

As you can see you've totally stumped me pretty much.

Well, this one is tough...

Let's see, on your list, you've got two correct answers, two parks that were the team's second home, one that was the team's first but the franchise's second, and one that was the team's third home field. Not sure if that information helps in matching the teams to the parks, though...

Let's see... the only ones from your list that he used were Jarry Park of the Expos and Wrigley Field of the Angels.

The Pirates won their first World Series in Forbes Field, but they played their first game in Exposition Park.

I believe that the Blue Jays played in Exhibition Stadium before the Skydome was built.

I thought that the Cubs started play as the Chicago White Stockings in the Union Baseball Grounds, but lets guess State Street Grounds for them.

That leaves the Brewers and Sicks Stadium. So only one logical match there.
