    Zell won’t hesitate to sell Wrigley Field naming rights
    3 hours, 10 minutes ago

    CHICAGO (AP)—The chief executive officer of the Tribune Company says he won’t hesitate to sell the naming rights to Wrigley Field—even if baseball purists don’t like the idea.

    During an interview on CNBC, Sam Zell says despite Wrigley Field being known worldwide, he didn’t get a discount because he wasn’t going to use the naming rights that the field represents.

    Zell said he plans to sell the Cubs and Wrigley separately and in his own time frame. He also disclosed that Major League Baseball has approved “four or six” potential ownership groups and that any one of them would be fine.

    The sale of the team has been delayed by Zell’s plan to sell the team and the stadium separately, and to have a state agency acquire and renovate Wrigley.

              Won't be a big deal....it will always be Wrigley.

              Heck...it will probably be Wrigley Field at AIDS Park...or something along those lines.

              I can hate the team and the fans, but I LOVE the stadium....even moreso after we got our big Lego kit stadium called Busch III.

                It will always be Wrigley to fans and foes of the Cubs as long as that place is still standing.

                The only people that will call it the other name are broadcasters.

                  Although Summer's Eve might have more marketing possibilities/baseball ties:

                    They can't have a douche of the game. We already do that in softball. But I do like the idea of that name for the ballpark

                      I just heard yesterday that the Cubs may play a whole season on the south side when they renovate the old dump.

                        I hope the people that own Extenze bid on the naming rights.
