Cubs apologize for long bathroom lines at Wrigley: ‘We missed the mark’

The Chicago Cubs are apologizing for long bathroom lines, even by Wrigley Field standards, at the team’s home opener Sunday night.

“Opening Day at Wrigley Field has always brought challenges with wait times and tonight was particularly extreme,” Cubs spokesman Julian Green said in a statement after the game.

Two bathrooms in the upper deck “went down temporarily” and forced fans downstairs “where we already were experiencing issues with long wait times,” Green said.

The statement did not say why the bathrooms were closed and Green could not be reached Monday morning.

Many fans took to social media to complain about the situation.

“I’m all for renovating, but I’ve now missed two innings trying to get into the bathroom,” said James Hillebrand in a tweet, directing it toward the Cubs’ official Twitter page. “Get your act together.”

Another Cubs fan, Tim Powers, encouraged people to “lay off the beer [and] avoid the restrooms.”
