Just imagine—a real professional baseball team on Chicago’s bustling North Side! There’ll be homeruns and no-hitters, doubles and double-plays, pitchers and catchers. Maybe they’ll win some games; maybe they’ll lose some games. But we’ll root-root-root for the home team anyway, because, no matter what, it’s not like it’ll take them 100 years to win a championship.
Audience choice: Demolition
Collapsible and expandable outfield wall to give the Cubs the handicap they need. Create a stadium that hovers in the air above Clark and Addison and turn the current one into a parking lot. (Ed: Huh?)Lazyboy loungers replace benches in bleachers section. MacPhail dunk tank or instead of the College of Coaches, how about the Carousel of Managers?Screen to keep the people INSIDE the park from having to see the game.
