The Construction at Wrigley Looks Crazy, But at Least the Cubs Home Will Be Standing for a Very Long Time

Chicago Cubs News

The offseason work at Wrigley Field continues, and summer baseball has never looked so far away.


Here’s a shot of inside the stadium, where workers are constructing subterranean luxury areas, moving both dugouts further down the line, expanding the much smaller and outdated visitors’ side, and more:

And here’s a shot of the work being done alongside/outside the left field wall. It’s not quite clear what exactly they’re working on here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was more structural integrity/preserving the longevity of Wrigley-type-stuff:

How cold do you think these construction workers are?

If you have a second, click and expand each of the following three pictures, because WOW. If you can’t tell, this is the third base side of the stadium (i.e. the home field dugout) and it is absolutely unrecognizable.


These pictures reminds me of one of those “cross-section” images of a building:

It’s so strange to see into Wrigley Field like that, and while it looks cool … I still can’t wait until it’s all wrapped up and looking green again.

And not that I would’ve expected anything else, but clearly the Ricketts Family and the Cubs are investing in Wrigley Field for the long haul. I’m very glad to see the necessary work get done, no matter how strange it looks from above. It sure seems like Wrigley Field will be here for a very long time. As it should be.


The Cubs’ home opener is Monday, April 9 against the Pirates, so the crews have a little over three months to get things ship shape. Plenty of time, right?
