Ricketts' plan for rickety Wrigley

ChicagoBusiness Insider

Crain's Chicago Business has been the leading source of news and insight on the city's economic scene for over 30 years.

We're starting to get a sense of the direction Tom Ricketts may take the Cubs. Earlier today ESPN 1000 reported that Ricketts plans to retain team president Crane Kenney -- an old Tribune hand. That would seem to bode well for GM Jim Hendry and the rest of the front office.

And Crain's Sr. Reporter Mike Colias has gained some insight on Ricketts' plans for cramped, crumbling, revenue-under-generating Wrigley Field. Ricketts is likely to wait four or five years before undertaking a major ballpark renovation. It may take him that long to figure out how to pay for it. What he's planning may surprise you. Check it out.
