4/5 Wrigley plan
The Cubs and Chicago city officials are expected to finalize an agreement that will allow the team to proceed with its renovation plan of Wrigley Field. The Chicago Sun-Times reported the deal will include a video scoreboard in left field and more signage in the ballpark that could “minimally” impact a few of the rooftop owners. The Cubs also were expected to add more game-day security and build a new parking facility. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will reportedly remove the limit on night games, currently set at 30 a year, and allow “40 or more,” according to the report. The Cubs also would be able to have some 3:05 p.m. CT starts. Details on the deal were being finalized.
