Wrigley Field's Famed Bleachers Demolished in $575M Facelift

By    |   Friday, 17 Oct 2014 08:29 AM

The famous bleachers at Chicago's Wrigley Field have been demolished as construction equipment starts to take big bites out of the historic ballpark exterior outfield walls, part of $575 million facelift.

The Associated Press reported Chicago Cubs spokesman Julian Green as saying Thursday that the affected walls won't be rebuilt for several weeks. He says the ivy-covered outfield wall will not be taken down.

The bleacher demolition makes room for a large electronic sign and six other outfield signs.

The work is part of the Cubs' privately funded renovation project. The Cubs started the project despite a legal fight involving owners of rooftop businesses across the street.

Those businesses fear their views of the field will be blocked. They have sued the city.
