Commissioner Bud Selig came out swinging Wednesday on behalf of the Ricketts family, which he believes is being treated unfairly by the Chicago media in their battle with rooftop owners.
Selig said he’ll do “whatever is legally” possible to help the Cubs get their $300 million ballpark renovation plan underway.
“That’s how strongly I feel about preserving Wrigley Field,” he said. “You can’t ask a team to be competitive and you can’t ask people to do things and then tie their hands and their legs. It’s just wrong. Somebody has to say it’s wrong, and I’m going to say it.”
