Cubs and Chicago Make Progress in Wrigley Talks
Ricketts talked before the Cubs hosted the Milwaukee Brewers yesterday in the first game of the season at their 99-year-old neighborhood ballpark. The team and the city appear to be close to announcing a $500 million project.
The Cubs are eager to update Wrigley, saying it spends as much as $15 million a year just to keep up with the repairs. The Ricketts family bought the Cubs in 2009 for $845 million.
