Wrigley Field bleachers may not be rebuilt by opening day, because Cubs

And how was your Thanksgiving weekend? I’m guessing better than Chicago Cubs president of business operations Crane Kenney, who had to start off his by announcing that renovations to the Wrigley Field bleachers may not be done in time for opening day. When the team tore down the bleachers after last season, it discovered an “antiquated” water main, which had to be replaced, and so one thing led to another and now bleacher ticketholders may have to be relocated to the grandstand for the start of the season, and the ivy may have a backdrop of construction machinery.

All of which should be no surprise to anyone who’s renovated anything, but it still has sportswriters making fun of the Cubs for being the Cubs. Which should also be no surprise to anyone who’s ever been around the Cubs, so really we’re all good here.
