CHICAGO (AP) - The Cubs received permission to add 70 ``bullpen box seats'' along the third base line at Wrigley Field, and install additional signage inside the park.
The city of Chicago on Thursday gave approval for the changes at the 93-year-old ballpark, which has landmark status.
Peter Scales of the city's Department of Planning and Development said the changes were approved because ``landmark buildings aren't frozen in time, need to be maintained and can be improved while respecting their history.''
The changes were approved as Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Mayor Richard Daley mull the Tribune Co.'s request to have the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority acquire and renovate Wrigley Field.
Cubs vice president Mike Lufrano says in addition to the seats, the club will be extending digital signage on the sides of the grandstand.
