A mild winter of historic proportions has allowed construction crews in Chicago to work at break-neck speed during the renovation and expansion of Wrigley Field.
The $13.5 million project will add 1,800 seats to the Cubs' home ballpark by extending the bleachers outward toward the grandstand. In addition, new restrooms, concession areas and television screens will be added on the ground- level of the bleachers.
Included within the scope of the work will be netting placed underneath the roof of the grandstand to prevent pigeons from roosting in the upper deck.
I guess the Cubs organization figured their fans had been crapped on enough.
