The Chicago Cubs are promoting a "Bleacher Friday" campaign, which would be perfectly fine were it not for the fact that Wrigley Field does not currently have any bleachers, and will not have them any time soon.


The Cubs owners have undertaken a controversial remodeling plan for the 100-year-old field, which includes increased signage in the outfield and new bleachers that will not be ready for the beginning of the season and have been delayed further by the cold weather.

The team hopes the rightfield bleacher will be open in early June, while the left and centerfield bleachers are scheduled to open on May 11.
