Ricketts sees progress on Wrigley renovation, but no additional night games

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Chicago Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts said the upcoming season will not include more night games or increased signage at Wrigley Field.

Those are the two requests the team made for added revenue to fund a $300 million renovation without using any taxpayer money.

"I don't think that's on the table at the moment," Ricketts said of an effort for additional night games in 2013.

Ricketts also said the team might be saying goodbye to longtime broadcasting partner WGN when its contract ends after the 2014 season.

The night game issue was derailed by ongoing conflict with neighborhood leaders, causing Mayor Rahm Emanuel to delay support for the request until the sides reach an agreement on multiple issues.

"All the discussions on night games is toward the future."
