If you want to get a good look at Wrigley Field as we know it you probably have just a few days left.
Cubs spokesman Julian Green laid out franchise’s plans for the long-awaited and controversial renovation of the 100-year-old ballpark. Green said the Cubs will have shovels in the ground soon, possibly as quickly as this weekend as they start the $575 million project they promise will keep Wrigley Field viable.
Per Green, the team is taking bids on a manufacturer for the left-field video board and hope to have that settled by the new year. The plan is for that screen, the right field Budweiser sign and work on the bleachers to be completed by the start of the 2015 season.
