While parts of Wrigley Field are still very much under construction, the Cubs made a number of big debuts at last night's season opener. New manager Joe Maddon was spotted sporting a Cubs hat, while pricey starting pitcher Jon Lester took to the mound. However, despite all of the new personnel that made their grand debut at Wrigley Field yesterday, perhaps none have been as contentious as the video signage that is now anchored in the outfield. While the saga of the video boards has been playing out for well over a year, the owners of the surrounding rooftop properties have finally thrown in the towel. The new video signage has received some positive reviews, but the long lines outside of the bathrooms have become the next major issue that may affect the Cubs.
