Cubs Chairman Wants Video Board at Wrigley Field 5/1/13
The Associated Press
Chicago- Chicago Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts says a new video board could bring in big bucks for the team, and the Cubs could use the money. He wants a 6,000 square foot video board at Wrigley Field -- a board he says could generate $20 million a year more in ad revenue. Ricketts says the video board proposed for the left field is "midsize' compared to those at other ball parks. Rooftop owners near Wrigley Field charge fans for access to watch Cubs games and are worried the board would block their views. They've vowed legal action if that happens. Ricketts says studies indicate the views would only be blocked minimally, if at all. Ricketts spoke to the City Club of Chicago.
