The final panels went in today, and, although it hasn’t been turned on yet (here’s hoping they built it close enough to an outlet), it’s official: Wrigley Field has a large video board in left field.
What may have sounded like an April Fool’s Day joke 10 years ago is definitely not one today. Welcome to the future:

It’s big, and it’ll be a big change. But I’m totally on board for the future of Wrigley Field. The board might be the single most impactful, noticeable change at the old ballpark, but I am confident that it will be integrated tastefully, and fans will ultimately come to appreciate the replays, expanded stats, and features. I can’t wait to see this in action on Sunday.
And, yes, the Cubs will appreciate the added revenue.
