Wrigley Field is the second oldest ballpark in the major leagues. It is also one of the most historic and one of the few old school stadiums still standing. When the Ricketts Family bought the team in 2009, they promised sweeping changes were coming to this franchise.
While those sweeping changes still have yet to translate to the product on the field, other changes are already being made. In January, Cubs owner Tom Ricketts announced a new $500 million plan to renovate the 99-year-old ballpark.
Here is what these renovations could look like when all is said and done. Among the changes that will be coming will be a new Cubs clubhouse, new press box, widened concourses, more restaurants and bars, and merchandise shops among other things.
There is even rumors about adding a jumbotron. The only things that I like about this new proposal are the new clubhouse, press box, and concourse expansion. Being one of the reporters who covers the team, I can tell you from personal experience tho...
