Expansion of the women’s bathrooms on the first-base side of the ballpark and upgrading the lighting and fixtures in the men’s room will take place in 2010.
That will be part of the Cubs’ first steps in making the ballpark more comfortable for their fanbase. The Cubs will also move the umpires locker room from the third-base side to the first-base side of the ballpark in 2010.
The exisiting room where umpires have dressed and occupied will now become the team’s new weight room. Upgrading the work environment for the players is also a major goal of the new owners.
