KEEPING SCORE: The CHICAGO TRIBUNE's Sullivan reported the Cubs are "making several changes at Wrigley Field in 2010, including a 'refacing' of the back of the historic center-field scoreboard." Kenney: "We're tearing it all apart and rebuilding it." The front of the scoreboard "will remain the same." The back "has a neon sign that says 'Chicago Cubs,' which will remain the same." There will be "no ads put on the back of the scoreboard for now." Kenney: "That's not to say we're not looking at some marketing opportunities." Sullivan noted the Cubs "recently installed two large wooden boards in the left-field bleachers to give potential sponsors a look at what their ad can look like." The boards also "obstructed the view of the Horseshoe Casino ad" near the ballpark. The boards "were taken down last week, but are likely to be installed for good before the 2010 season" (CHICAGOBREAKINGSPORTS.com, 12/4). Meanwhile, Kenney said the Cubs are “looking at the possibility of installing an intranet at Wrigley for fans” with smartphones, giving them “access to stats and instant replays” (CHICAGOBREAKINGSPORTS.com, 12/5).
