10/4 Wrigley changes approved

The Commission on Chicago Landmarks permit review committee voted 5-1 today in favor of the Cubs’ plan to move the brick wall behind home plate forward three feet to create 56 new seats. According to Crain’s Chicago Business, the team also received permission to reconfigure a nearly 12-foot long section of the wall along the third base line so it would become movable. By doing so, Wrigley Field could be better fitted for college football games. In November 2010, Illinois and Northwestern played at Wrigley, and were forced to use only one end zone because the NCAA determined there wasn’t a safe distance between the back end of the east end zone and the brick outfield wall. Michael Lufrano, vice president of community affairs and general counsel for the Cubs, said alterations to the wall will be done in the offseason.

Who was the gentleman who sang the 7th. inning stretch last Tuesday nite. He always sits behind home plate with a pink hat or a green hat.

Why add more seats when Cub fans attendance is down now and will be in 2013?

Because they’re the more expensive seats.? They might not fill up but at least they’ll cost more.

They are preparing for POST SEASON games!!! Go Cubs!!
