Isn't a facade by definition false?

I can't say for sure, but I don't think there will even be a brick wall in that area (camera well and a little down 3B line)

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

What is the deal with the "smaller seats" that have supposedly been added down the right and left field lines? Does anyone know which rows/sections were affected by this so that I can avoid them at all costs?

When the Cubs decided to move and enlarge the dugouts and build a swanky, exclusive club behind home plate, they also changed some of the seats down the left- and right-field lines, making them smaller.

Some complained those aren’t big enough for regular-sized fans. One said they were built for “middle school students,” and another wondered if they were modeled after middle seats in the back of airplanes. One fan called it the “120-pound or less section,” and another called the section “the Spirit Airlines of stadium seats.”

Wrigleyville Taco Bell manager allegedly stabs employee over fight about a woman....the employee declines to press charges. Sounds fishy.

Apparently for some reason there is going to be a Chicago Bowl Game in 2020 and it will likely be at Wrigley.

https://www.postandcourier.com/sports/m ... 5f2af.html

National writer Brett McMurphy reported on Twitter that the NCAA has approved Myrtle Beach and Chicago as sites for two of the new bowl games, with an official announcement set for Wednesday.


https://chicago.suntimes.com/sports/wri ... committee/

There’s a good chance Wrigley Field could host two college football games during the 2020 season.

Northwestern will host Wisconsin on Nov. 7, 2020, but a new report suggests that discussions are ongoing for Wrigley to play host to a bowl game, too.


It will likely be B1G vs. ACC

Nothing like coming to Chicago in late December to play a bowl game.

Don't tell me you wouldn't be all over mediocre Michigan and Notre Dame teams playing each other at Wrigley.

The reason is money and that game will sell out every year if it involves a B1G team.
