Super Saturday (on Sunday) Cubs owners have tough job with Wrigley Field plans

Start here

The Ricketts family has  to find a balance between  the old fashioned  charm of going to  a game  at Wrigley and drawing in enough dollars to help in  building a winning team.  Here are my thoughts on some of the ideas for Wrigley Field.

1. More night games. I remember when  The Tribune Company (formerly owned the Cubs) first installed the lights back 1988 They said no more than 18 night games  a season . Over the years that number has increased steadily over the years and change in ownership. It is  now hard to  distinguish the Cubs’ home schedule from any other MLB club . If not for the  Friday afternoon   home games  the daytime the daytime mystique which was once a big selling point to those who hunger for  a taste of baseball’s past or keeping up a proud   Cub fan tradition of skipping work or school to catch the Cubs . The Ricketts will have to balance how many dollars they will lose or gain by adding more night games. I will say this  night games in the deep freeze which can be Chicago in April, for the fan base  still in grained for day games seem like bad marketing idea.

2. Video boards -again old charm vs. trying to finance the future 

3.  More   party rooms and signage just buy across the street propetries they can then  rent the apparments as live- in suties. something no club has.
