The day after the Chicago Cubs season came to a close at the hands of the LA Dodgers, the tearing up of the “friendly confines” began–with a vengeance.

The most noticeable difference in 2018 will be the relocating and widening of the dugouts, which will be moved from 15 to 30 feet down the left and right field lines and should provide more air circulation and better sight lines for the players.
