Cubs say Wrigley Field will be ready for home opener on April 11

Wrigley Field is an elaborate construction zone, with much of the ballpark wrapped in tarps or dismantled as workers labor to complete this offseason’s renovation.

But despite the appearance, Cubs officials Tuesday said the ballpark will be ready for the team’s home opener against the Reds on April 11.

Cubs spokesman Julian Green said work on Wrigley Field remains on schedule and the projects wil be completed in time.

On WSCR-AM 670’s “Mully and Hanley” show, Cubs business President Crane Kenney said that most of the changes this season will be for players — in particular a new 30,000-square-foot Cubs clubhouse, which will be the second biggest in baseball, just behind the clubhouse at Yankee Stadium.

One of the biggest changes for fans will be that they all must go through metal detectors before entering the ballpark.
