Wrigley Field’s jumbotron is ready for opening day.
After months of construction and many legal battles with rooftop owners, the Chicago Cubs will finally be able to debut their jumbotron to their fans on Sunday when they face the St. Louis Cardinals in their home opener. The Cubs senior marketing director Alison Miller shared with the Chicago Tribune a long list of details.
The left-field board extends 95 feet and stands 42 feet tall. It’ll feature replays, statistics, and some old Cubs footage, including an Ernie Banks tribune on opening night. Fans will not need to worry about any commercials, however there will be some sponsors.
Also new with this board, Cubs will be bringing back walk-up music. The organization tried to introduce it back in 2010 but they ditched the idea in 2011. But according to Miller, the players were very excited about the idea. In fact, a lot of them asked for the return of the music. Manager Joe Maddon has even submitted a lot of his favorite songs. But don’t you worry, fans of the old and classic, the organ music will continue.
