At a presentation last night, the Chicago Cubs revealed their first mock-ups of, among other things, the signage they propose to erect in the outfield at Wrigley Field, as well as the hotel being built on the McDonald’s property and the plaza being built on the triangle property just west of the ballpark.
There will be much more to say on the renovations later today, as Tom Ricketts is going to be making a presentation to the media. In the interim, here’s a quick look at the proposed outfield signage – a JumboTron, which doesn’t look too bad, and a see-through sign in right field – and the hotel/plaza area just west of the ballpark. The latter looks pretty much as it has been described.
The pictures were provided by the Cubs to Crain’s, the Chicago Tribune, CSN, the Sun-Times, and DNAinfo, and you can go to those links to see more pictures (and larger versions of the ones below). I’ll try to get some larger copies and a full set to share here as well.
