Wrigley Field renovation plans have been ongoing since the Ricketts family took control of the team, and a proposed $300 million renovation is awaiting approval.
The renovations include a 6,000-square-foot video scoreboard in left field, signage in right field, a hotel across the street where the McDonald's is currently located and more late afternoon and night games.
The additions would create a revenue stream that the Ricketts have deemed necessary, to the point that they would consider moving the team if the renovation plan is not passed (h/t Chicago Sun Times).
The city of Rosemont, Illinois, has already offered up a 25-acre plot of land to the team for free should the Ricketts opt to move the team.
It remains a long shot at this point, but here is a look at five would-be consequences of Tom Ricketts yanking the Cubs out of Wrigley Field.
