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.

It’s the sights, sounds and smells indicating Opening Day is near.

Thanks for using the picture of Big Z and Mike Fonteno for ‘1000 Words’! It’s such a cool picture, and I have it on my door now.
I also really liked the “10th Inning” section that you added. It was cool to read an article written from the viewpoint of a fan.
