Last year’s debut of the new Budweiser Bleachers took longer than expected — the bitter cold winter led to weather delays that put construction behind schedule. The bleachers were fully finished by the Fourth of July. This year, Wrigley adds a new bar at the gates at Sheffield and Waveland avenues and an elevator.
A replica ivy wall and five display cases with Cubs history are also additions to the bleachers. Below the scoreboard, four fans will snag reserved seats in the Pepsi Batter’s Eye at center field. The suite has been renamed the Fannie May Bleacher “Sweet” and offers upgraded dessert packages, cheesecakes and Fannie May chocolate trays.
