CHICAGO (AP) As the cranes and trucks hummed just beyond the chain-link fence along Waveland Avenue, Erika Pflederer stopped to take it all in.
She could see the exposed back of Wrigley Field's brick outfield wall and the grandstand seats with the bleachers torn out. In the transformation of the famous ballpark she sees a change for the better for the Chicago Cubs, too.
"I think it's insanely exciting," says Pflederer, a longtime Cubs fan. "It finally feels like we're on the verge of really trying to accomplish (something big). We've all said maybe someday, maybe next year. It feels like we're finally on the verge or really making it happen."
