Upgrading Wrigley Field should be a top priority whenever this sale goes through.
And I’m talking about improvements far beyond the new batter’s eye box and lame ads covering the outfield ivy.
Look no further than Boston and the superb job they’ve done renovating Fenway beginning in 2001.
Not only did the Red Sox realize the need for such upgrades, but they also understood the correct answer had nothing to do with tearing the park down or simply standing pat while the yard disintegrated.
Instead, the ownership group started making significant upgrades such as revamping the playing field, adding more restrooms and fitting the Green Monster with seats.
And during the last eight years Boston’s efforts have continuously improved the park for both its players and fans, proving it’s in the Cubs best interests to follow suit.
