“I am excited and I am sure (the fans) are too,” Cubs pitcher James Russell said. “I just remember all the fun people have out there. Just pounding beers and yelling at whatever left fielder is out there.”

The original bleachers were opened in 1937, and the latest renovations (which increased capacity by 500) are the most significant yet.

“I like it ... looks good so far,” Cubs fan Bob Radek offered. “I like this whole area up here (in center). Lot more room up here and a lot more room on the concourse too.”
