With much success comes many changes, and some of the new changes are rubbing Cubs fans the wrong way, especially the regular sized Cubs fans. There’s some major backlash among the regular folk, who may not be able to sit in some of the seats.
They were built for a much smaller person, almost like a middle school kid.
Via the Chicago Tribune:
When the Cubs decided to move and enlarge the dugouts and build a swanky, exclusive club behind home plate, they also changed some of the seats down the left- and right-field lines, making them smaller.
Some complained those aren’t big enough for regular-sized fans. One said they were built for “middle school students,” and another wondered if they were modeled after middle seats in the back of airplanes. One fan called it the “120-pound or less section,” and another called the section “the Spirit Airlines of stadium seats.”
“It’s a huge difference (from last year),” said Don Cameron, a Cubs’ fan from Barrington who was wedged into a seat rubbing shoulders with his son. “I suppose it’s better now than it’ll be in August when it’s 95 degrees and we’re all sweating.”
To think about fans packed in like sardines during a hot humid day in Wrigley, that’s just wrong. I get it if they were ‘large fans’ but regular sized fans. What is this a ballpark for ants? Corporate greed continues to reign supreme.
