Ricketts sees progress on Wrigley renovation plans
Sunday, February 17, 2013
MESA, Ariz. — Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts said the team is making progress with Chicago city officials on Wrigley Field renovation plans.
However, the efforts to get more night games at Wrigley this season are on hold for now.
“I don’t think that’s on the table at the moment,” Ricketts said of an effort for additional night games in 2013.
The issue was derailed by ongoing conflict with neighborhood leaders, causing Mayor Rahm Emanuel to delay support for the request until the sides reach an agreement on multiple issues.
“All the discussions on night games is toward the future.”
