Wrigley Field is due for a makeover, and it looks like it will be getting a pretty great one. Check out the photos of the proposed new renovations which will cost around $300 million dollars and take five years to finish. The changes will include overhauls of concessions, bathrooms, and even a new clubhouse for the players.  The Cubs announced their plans at the Cubs Convention during a presentation given by Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney. “We listened to you, and your love for this ballpark came through loud and clear,” Kenney said. “Your input was put into this ballpark, and what you see is the direction we’re heading.” Kenney also made mention of the issues which the Cubs are facing in paying for the expensive face-lift. “In most ballparks, if you’re a publically funded facility like our friends on the South Side, there’s an amusement tax, Kenney said. “…If this is such an asset (to the community) and we’re being restricted, we need some help. If they want to treat us like the other 29 (privately owned) clubs, where we can play games whenever, have advertisements, the Rickets will be prepared to write the check.” [Lakeview Patch] Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
