Cubs' Ballpark Renovation Plans Include Adding A New Entrance To Wrigley Field
Published May 16, 2013
VISION OF LOVE: Cubs Chair Tom Ricketts appearing yesterday on "The Dan Patrick Show" said his "vision" of Wrigley Field is "we want to take the entire experience of coming to Wrigley and just make it better all the way around." He added, "It's obviously a beautifully laid out park ... Our vision is basically not just preserve it and restore it to the days when it looked great, but to just make it a better experience for fans when they're there and I think we're kind of on the right track and we're moving forward on that." Ricketts said of his previous comments that he might leave Wrigley Field without the improvements to the ballpark, "In the context of the question, basically the question was, 'What if you're not able to put any type of signage or videoboard in your outfield?' And I said at that point, then we'd have to put some options back on the table. But I think people read a lot into that. But the key is -- and we've been pretty consistent about this the whole time -- it's our goal to save Wrigley" ("The Dan Patrick Show," 5/15).
