The Chicago Cubs began the process of evaluating new signs and video boards in the Wrigley Field outfield Tuesday.

Cranes were positioned outside the ballpark on Waveland and Sheffield Avenues to install mockups of the right field sign and tarps representing the proposed 6,000 square feet video screen.

Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts took in the view from a rooftop on Sheffield Avenue as the mockup sign in right field was put into position.

“It was what we expected,” Ricketts said, adding he considered the sign “minimal” blockage of the view of rooftops.
