Chicago Alderman Asks Cubs to Reduce Video Screen SizeCHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago alderman whose ward includes Wrigley Field is pushing for smaller video boards than the Chicago Cubs have proposed to erect at the historic ball park.
The Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/19DlRkJ ) reports that Alderman Tom Tunney wrote a letter to the Cubs saying that he wants the team's proposed 6,000 square-foot Jumbotron be scaled back to 4,500 square feet. He also wrote that he wants a smaller sign in right field than the Cubs have proposed.
The Cubs were scheduled to go before a city landmarks commission yesterday to discuss various aspects of the team's renovation plan, but any discussion about the signs won't happen until next month.
Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts' spokesman Dennis Culloton says the team is still looking forward to working with the city.
