Watch: Aerial view of Wrigley Field renovations
With renovations still underway at Wrigley Field, Colin Hinkle of Soaring Badger Productions used a drone to film the iconic stadium before construction began and again earlier this month.
The outfield bleachers are undergoing a massive facelift which has been delayed by record cold temperatures. While the left and centerfield bleachers are expected to be ready for May 11, the rightfield bleachers have been delayed until June.
Beyond the frigid weather, the renovations have been controversial throughout the winter. Neighboring rooftop owners tried to sue the Cubs to stop construction, but a judge ultimately denied the request.
Earlier this month, Cubs president of business operations Crane Kenney said the team considered playing its entire 2015 home schedule in Milwaukee at the Brewers’ Miller Park because of construction delays. Kenney said the Cubs decided to play their games at Wrigley because it would have been "too much displacement" for their fans.
