Cubbies Unveil Plans For Renovated Wrigley

Apparently, Theo Epstein was a good student. The Cubs today unveiled their mock-up of a renovated Wrigley Field that has a lot of similarities to what's been done to Fenway over the last decade. The $370 million renovation will include a 200-seat restaurant behind the home dugout, a 30,000 square foot expanded clubhouse (second only in size to that of The Evil Ones)—all of which would be finished in time for the 2018 season (yeah, right!). Seven new outfield signs/scoreboards would be incorporated into the new plan—assuming it doesn't tick-off too many "rooftop club owners". The team owners—the Ricketts family—also plan to build a hotel, a plaza and an office-retail building on the property.
