Sports have been gone for 3.5 months, and we are learning things about what we miss the most. For me, I miss going to MLB games. I probably go to about 10 a year, and really cannot wait until I can do it again.
Now an opportunity has emerged. While it may be insanely expensive, Wrigleyville rooftops will be allowed to operate at 25 percent capacity this season. Josh Frydman of WGN reports:
Source tells me the city of Chicago has given approval to Wrigleyville rooftops to host fans for Cubs games at 25% capacity. Tickets expected to go on sale once the MLB schedule is released, though my source says tickets will not be sold for potential exhibition games. @WGNNews

This didn’t come completely out of the blue — Cubs president Crane Kenney said he expected it to be the case in a recent radio interview — but it’s a pretty awesome loophole. On some level, I wonder if it could be a Trojan horse for other stadiums across MLB to allow some fans. The Ricketts family, who own the Cubs, also own most of the rooftop buildings surrounding Wrigley Field. Other owners will invariably wonder why the Cubs can do this, but they can’t have fans in their own parks. We shall see where this goes from here.

Several rooftops do allow their tickets to be posted on StubHub and other secondary market websites. Should be a very interesting secondary market if they allow the tickets to be posted on there.
