Cubs Approved For 46 Night Games, But Team Unhappy With Proposed Plan For Rainouts
Published June 5, 2013
NIGHT VISION: Cubs VP/Communications & Community Affairs Julian Green yesterday said that he "doesn't expect these problems to hold up the broader Wrigley Field deal." Green: "The good news is, we're at the table, and we always have been at the table, and the city's at the table. So we're going to continue to talk and make sure we can move forward" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 6/5). One Cubs official last night said that giving the city control over rescheduling rainouts would be "logistically impossible, and shows the city's complete lack of understanding of how the baseball schedule works." In Chicago, Paul Sullivan notes the city "obviously could not tell other teams when it could come back to Chicago" as some teams "come in only once a year." The Cubs "intend to fight the change strenuously, and MLB is likely to support them on this issue" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 6/5).
