After months of construction, Wrigley Field's new outfield bleachers are now completely finished and ready for fans. As a part of ongoing updates throughout the century old stadium, Wrigley Field's outfield bleachers were demolished over the winter to make way for newer, larger seating areas. The bleachers weren't finished in time for opening day this year, but the left field and center field bleachers made their debut last month. Last night, the final remaining piece—the right field bleachers—were opened for the first time, signaling a completion of the outfield bleacher construction. Joining the new bleachers are two video boardsone in left field and one in right field, complete with new corporate sponsors. Wrigley Field's renovation has not been without controversy, as nearby residents and property owners put up a big fight to prevent parts of the renovations from happening, particularly the electronic signage. However, the Ricketts family are quickly scooping up the rooftop properties that surround Wrigley Field, signalling the defeat of the renovation plan's opponents.
