Ricketts hopeful about Wrigley renovation plan

Ricketts hopeful about Wrigley renovation plan

Posted: Updated:

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts was in the suburbs telling business executives he doesn't want or expect to move the team out of Chicago.

Ricketts created a stir last week when he suggested in a speech that he'd consider moving the Cubs out of Wrigley Field. He said he'd consider it if he didn't win city approval for a large new video screen. But on Tuesday, The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports that Ricketts downplayed those comments. He said at the DuPage County Regional Business Outlook forum in Oakbrook Terrace that he remains focused on renovating Wrigley.

Before Ricketts left, though, former DuPage County Board Chairman Robert Schillstrom said if Ricketts does decide to leave Wrigley, the team is "always welcome" in that county.
