At long last, Cubs will raise championship banner at Wrigley

That game, against the Los Angeles Dodgers, could be cancelled if thunderstorms prevail, but there is no way to cancel how fancy Wrigley Field is becoming.

Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber is featured in a new Gatorade commercial that was released on April 10th.

The banner raising on Monday and ring ceremony two days later are like the final punctuation marks on last season's historic run.

Last year, the Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series after a 108-year drought.

The Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Chicago Cubs in the National League playoffs late in the 2016 season and will be looking for some payback during this series at Wrigley. Don't worry, you can still see everything live. Replacing a surface lot previously reserved for player parking, the new Park at Wrigley attraction adds new pavers, planters, and a grassy lawn to a triangle-shaped wedge of land just west of the Friendly Confines. There is a newly constructed building with a two-story team store and a higher-end Starbucks Reserve stands at the corner of Clark Street and Waveland Avenue. For many fans, it will be their first look at spruced-up Wrigley since it underwent an offseason makeover.

Inside, one noticeable change will be the location of the bullpens.

But the most welcomed change for long-suffering fans? "We're disappointed because only fans with tickets around 3 o'clock will be able to get to this park, so we have to clear the entire park, kick everybody out and then check tickets to make sure people can get in and it's unfortunate". "That's going to be some day that you won't forget".
