Wrigley Field getting more seats behind home plate
October 4, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The Cubs are getting the green light to add more seats behind home plate at Wrigley Field.
The brick wall will be moved 3-feet closer to the field. That will allow the team to add 56 premium-priced seats.
But it will also make foul territory behind the plate smaller.
The approval for the change to the 99-year-old stadium came from the Chicago Landmarks Commission, which is required, because the Friendly Confines is a historic landmark.
