The Cubs got the go-ahead Thursday to add 70 premium-priced "bullpen box seats" along the third base line at Wrigley Field -- and install additional signage -- to wring more revenue out of the 93-year-old ballpark.
"We're adding 70 additional bullpen box seats on the third base side, much as we did previously on the first-base side. These will be great seats and, just like the seats behind home plate, will blend in with the architecture and history of Wrigley Field," said Mike Lufrano, the Cubs' vice president of community relations. "We're also extending digital signage on the sides of the grandstands by adding fixed advertising panels on either side."
