Rooftop owners watching Wrigley Field deal

CHICAGO (AP) — The Wrigleyville Rooftops Association says its members will do what's necessary to enforce their contract with the Chicago Cubs as the team moves forward with plans to renovate Wrigley Field.

The Cubs and the city of Chicago announced details of the $500 million agreement late Sunday. It includes a 6,000-square-foot electronic video screen and more night games. The Cubs have an agreement with rooftop owners that lasts until 2024. It calls for owners to pay a percentage of their revenue to the team.

The rooftop association released its statement Monday. The plan still needs final approval and the rooftop owners say they'll participate in the process. They say any deal shouldn't violate their contract.

Previously rooftop owners have threatened to sue if the renovation does anything to hurt their business.
