A message from the Cubs

From the Cubs:

Dear Neighbors,

Thank you for your recent email regarding the Wrigley Field sound system.

In support of our commitment to keep you informed of the work happening in and around the ballpark, below is an update on the construction process and progress. All other recent updates about the restoration and expansion of Wrigley Field are available on wrigleyfield.com.

Update on Wrigley Field Sound Levels

In response to the feedback we received, we continue to work to better understand the impact of our new sound system. We are working with our sound engineers to redirect speakers and adjust sound balance in the ballpark. We will continue this effort during this week’s homestand.  Getting optimal results requires testing the system during games, when fans are in place, since testing in an empty ballpark can give a skewed version of sound and reverberations.

As construction of the Budweiser Bleachers continues, we will have more options regarding speaker placement and direction. In the meantime, we will continue to work to properly balance and direct sound inside the ballpark and reduce its impact on our neighbors.

Thank you for your continued support and patience throughout this process as we work diligently to find a suitable solution. Restoring and enhancing Wrigley Field will benefit the local economy and help ensure the Lakeview community continues to thrive.
