New Wrigley bleachers behind schedule
CHICAGO (AP) — The timeline may be off for the Chicago Cubs to have the Wrigley Field bleacher renovation done by Opening Day.
Cubs spokesman Julian Green says unseasonably cold and windy weather is partly to blame. He also says city of Chicago crews installing a new water main are also keeping the Cubs from starting deep foundational work. The home opener against St. Louis is April 5.
The demolition of the bleachers is part of a larger $575 million project. The Cubs are also building a jumbo video board and six outfield signs.
