Wrigley Field has been going under renovation since the end of last season. Much of the work has been completed, but not all, most clearly the bleachers which have been notably empty since the Cubs have started playing their home games this year. (Usually those are the seats that fill up first.) But the bleachers are now scheduled to open on Monday when the team returns to Chicago.
For reasons that surprised even him, my cousin Peter Leviton had reason to be on the field at Wrigley Field the other day, as part of his job. And no, despite photographic evidence to the contrary, he doesn't work in construction. Nonetheless, he has raised his stature within the family considerably. Knowing Peter, though, I'm surprised I didn't read a news story about a crazed fan thrown out of the ballpark for running around the bases and sliding into each one and then ripping out home plate and trying to cart it away as a souvenir. He's very responsible, but just a giddy sort of fellow.
He kindly waived his $5,000 royalty fee for me to post his photo. However, in return he did ask that If any modeling agencies contact me about his availability, I tell them only on Thursdays. There, I've done my part.
Now, if the construction crew does theirs, Wrigley Field will be in good shape soon enough. As soon as they get that guy out of the infield.
