How Cubs are remodeling Wrigley to honor franchise icons


Cubs fans are returning to Wrigley Field Thursday, but the ballpark will have a new look to it from when spectators last attended games in 2019.

The Cubs are honoring franchise icons with new flags perched around the Friendly Confines.

Gone are the city and team name flags previously located on Wrigley's outer roof. Now in their place are 24 flags reading the last names of Cubs Hall of Famers, from Grover Alexander to Ernie Banks to Ryne Sandberg and many more.

The changes also affect the inside of the ballpark. Recognition flags previously perched on the stadium's inner roof are gone, and in their place now stand flags displaying the years the Cubs made the postseason.

Considering the Cubs have made five playoff appearances in the past six seasons, now is as good a time as any to make space for more of those flags.

The Cubs made a cool video detailing the changes: Check it out:
