Wrigley Field Bleacher Won’t Be Ready for Opening Day

This isn’t really news concerning the New York Yankees but I thought it was interesting enough to share with you guys and gals this morning. The main reason I wanted to share is because it’s embarrassing to the game and it has to be embarrassing to the Cubs. The organization has been talking up their renovations of Wrigley Field for what seems like forever now and when they finally pull the trigger they find out the new bleachers won’t be ready in time for Opening Day.

The Cubs are replacing the right and left field bleachers as a part of a five year overhaul of the 100 year old Wrigley Field in case you’re not up to speed on what is going on in Chicago. Supposedly the bleachers will not be ready until Early May in left field and late May in right field. This is causing the Cubs to either relocate or refund around 1,000 season ticket holders before May 11.

It’s also worth noting that the big left field video screen will be ready on Opening Day but the smaller one in right field will not be operational in May. What a mess, but at least you got Jon Lester.
