With the iconic Wrigley Field marquee back in place and the Cubs starting the season off with a 5-1 record, things are looking up for Chicago's North Siders. The famous Wrigley Field sign was missing for six months as construction continued around the ballpark. While it was down, the sign received some much needed repairs, including a fresh coat of red paint. Last Thursday, workers quickly hoisted the sign back into place, and EarthCam was there to catch the entire process. Using several hours of footage, EarthCam has created this one minute time lapse video of the sign's installation. All of this was done just in time for today's home opener.
