(AP) — Details are emerging Monday on the $500 million deal to overhaul Wrigley Field, the home of the Chicago Cubs.
The Cubs and the City of Chicago announced a framework for the deal Sunday night. It includes $300 million in stadium renovations that will feature a large new outfield video screen. It allows the Cubs to play more night games and expands parking with 1,000 remote spaces.
Night games would be increased to 40 games per season with the possibility of additional night games when required by Major League Baseball's TV contract or when the Cubs make the playoffs.
The Cubs would be allowed to put on four concerts each season. And the Cubs have agreed to pay for new traffic lights on Clark Street and more security outside the park.
