Wrigley Field still complete wreck nine days before opener, Cubs considering Banks “tribute” to hide it

Apologies for not posting any recent photos of the mess that is Wrigley Field as opening day approaches. Fortunately, Deadspin has us covered, with a full gallery of Wrigley bleachers destruct-o-porn courtesy of their readers. This is probably the wrecked-est looking one:

Of course, fans on opening day (just nine days away, people! on national TV!) won’t see all this mess, because Cubs management has a great idea to take care of that:

The Cubs are considering covering the incomplete bleachers with a tribute to late Hall of Famer Ernie Banks, Ricketts said, but nothing has been finalized.

The Ernie Banks Memorial Tarp — I can hardly wait.

  1. Sad to see the last big league venue in America, where you had no choice other than to watch the game unfolding in front of you, is being changed into just another place dedicated to bringing out the ADHD in all of us. Glad I visited the park 3 years ago.

  2. Ricketts wasn’t making any money off the manual scoreboard. Really sick & tired of all the video & PA noise at games. It’s not a concert.

  3. Well what can I say? Having followed the Cubs for over 40 years, this is par for the course

  4. Don’t worry Cubs fans. Theo and Joe will work day and night to right this wrong. They’ll also deliver a World Series this upcoming season too!
