More on Cubs new field

Last night on WGN's Sportscentral David Kaplan provided what seems like confirmation that the Cubs are about to begin work on putting in a new field at Wrigley. Kaplan spoke with a contact who is in the landscaping industry who told him that his (the landscaper) company would be providing equipment for the project. Apparently that equipment would be provided as soon as this upcoming weekend.

According to Kaplan the project is going to be a state of the art renovation that includes a grade A drainage system. As we have heard this project will necessitate removing a lot of soil from the current field. The surface will be dropped a few feet and potentially the team will be able to install another row or two of luxury seating. The cost may be upwards of $1.5M and if the project is going to be completed by opening day they need to begin digging before November 1st.
