Cubs unveil proposed Wrigley restoration photos

Tom Ricketts and other members of Cubs management met at a City Club of Chicago breakfast Wednesday morning to unveil new drawings for the Wrigley Field restoration project they hope to start following the 2013 baseball season.

Ricketts has proposed a $300 million renovation plan for the Friendly Confines, which turns 100 years old next season, and an additional $200 million in community investment. The plan calls for improvements to the concourse and clubhouses at the Friendly Confines, but the biggest topic of discussion has been the 6,000-square-foot scoreboard planned for left-center field. Other amenities include a new hotel with a health club and dining, a two-story restaurant/retail building where the Captain Morgan Club currently stands, an open plaza just to the west of the stadium and a new team office on Waveland Avenue and Clark Street.
