Carl Rice, Chicago Cubs
Vice president of Wrigley Field restoration and expansion
Over the past two years, Rice has focused his attention on the ballpark’s $600 million renovation and booking concerts. This summer, the Cubs have scheduled a record 10 shows at the Friendly Confines. Rice was vice president of ballpark operations before handing those duties over to Patrick Meenan in 2015. Rice has been employed with the Cubs since 1982, when he first worked part time for the team as a high school student.
