Wrigley Field

This photo taken at Wrigley Field Monday, April 15, 2013, in Chicago shows the right field bleachers and rooftop viewing in buildings across the street. Chicago Cubs baseball club chairman Tom Rickets said during a press conference today, that the Cubs and the city have agreed on details of a $500 million facelift for Wrigley Field, including an electronic video screen that is nearly three times as large as the one currently atop the centerfield bleachers of the 99-year-old ballpark. Under terms of the agreement, the Cubs would also be able to increase the number of night games at Wrigley Field from 30 to 40 or nearly half the games played there each season. They would give Ricketts the ability to renovate the second-oldest park in the major leagues, boost business and perhaps make baseball's most infamous losers competitive again. "Rooftop views are largely preserved," the team said in its announcement. "The Cubs have agreed to install only two signs in the outfield a video board in left field and a sign in right field. This is far less than our original desire for seven signs to help offset the cost of ballpark restoration." (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
