Wrigley 100th Innovations
FILE - In this May 1, 2013, file photo, Chicago Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts speaks in Chicago about proposed renovations at Wrigley Field. Wrigley Field has been the site of so much heartbreak that some fans who spend their whole lives waiting for a winner ask their families, if they can pull it off, to sneak their ashes inside to be scattered in the friendly confines, a final resting place to keep on waiting. But before years turned into decades and decades turned into a century without a World Series title, Wrigley Field was in first time and time again in changing the way we watch baseball and the experience for fans in ballparks around the country. Today, the Cubs are trying to play catch up with a project as dramatic as the one that resulted in a new scoreboard and brick outfield wall: a $500 million project that includes the kind of massive Jumbotron that towers over every other major league stadium. The historic ballpark will celebrate it's 100th anniversary on April 23, 2014. (AP Photo/Paul Beaty, File)
