Panel OKs New Wrigley Sign, Council Next

Ward's alderman wants City Council to approve sign

View Comments ()



    The Commission on Chicago Landmarks' permit review committee approved a plan that would allow the Chicago Cubs to install a new advertising sign above the right-field bleachers.

    The electronic sign, which would measure about 75 feet, would display advertising and information about the game. 

    But the plan is not a done deal. 

    Ald. Tom Tunney (44th), whose ward includes Wrigley Field, wants the full City Council to approve the sign before the Cubs can install it, reported the Sun-Times.

    "When you talk about what a hall of fame is all about, it's about the great performances on the field, but in some way it's got to be about the great people that are in that hall, and he's one of them," said Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts. "He belongs." (Published Monday, Dec. 5, 2011)

    Such an ordinance would ensure that the city and Cubs agree on a set of rules for other advertising at Wrigley Field in the future.

    The Cubs did not comment on Tunney's proposal.
