Wrigley Field at work
In addition to the field replacement, Wrigley Field has been bustling with crews repainting nearly the entirety of the ballpark. Cubs photographer Steve Green sent the photo above of the manual scoreboard laid bare to get a fresh coat of forest green paint. In fact, if you click on the photo for the full-resolution image, you can see the split in the middle showing the difference between the new (left) and faded (right) paint.
Walking the concourse the other day was an exercise in slalom; painters were placed zigzag to add another layer of paint atop beams, rails and walls.
It’s the sights, sounds and smells indicating Opening Day is near.
