Cubs and Chicago Make Progress in Wrigley Talks

CHICAGO (AP) - Cubs owner Tom Ricketts says talks with the city over a renovation plan for Wrigley Field are "going in the right direction" and the team is looking forward to the public part of the process.

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.
