Wrigley Field to Add Advertising Signage
While a historic landmark laden with all the usual conservative red tape, the Chicago Cubs don't want their Wrigley Field to be left out of the advertising signage bonanza and have proposed the addition of a 10 foot by 3 foot sign behind home plate along with additional seating. Under the plan, 80 permanent seats would be added to he right field dugout area along with a surrounding brick wall. Officials expect $3 to $5 million in revenue for 2005 but have stated they will not accept tobacco or liquor ads during the first year. The proposal aims to make permanent ads which, for the last two years, have been projected onto a green wall which only television viewers could see.
