Cubs planning $300 million Wrigley renovation

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

The Chicago Cubs announced a 5-year, $300 million plan to renovate Wrigley Field at the annual Cubs convention on Saturday.

There are still several hurdles to clear, including funding for the project, but owner Tom Ricketts is confident renovations can begin as early as October, starting with the home clubhouse.

Cubs president of business operations Crane Kenney said the Ricketts family would be happy to foot the entire bill, but would like fewer restrictions from the city in return.

The work would all be done in the offseason to avoid having to find a temporary home for the team - a detail that drew support from the room overflowing with Cubs fans.

    From stars Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson to up-and-comers Cordarrelle Patterson, Alshon Jeffrey and Eddie Lacy, with standouts like Reggie Bush, Brandon Marshall and Randall Cobb somewhere in between, the NFC North could probably field a Pro Bowl offense all by itself.

    All James Carpenter wanted was to be able to run. That seems an odd wish coming from a 6-foot-5, 321-pound offensive lineman.
