Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
The Cubs were fined $6,725 for performing repairs on Wrigley Field without the proper permits.
When asked about the permits, "Team officials have said they weren't aware permits were required." As a matter of fact they were unaware the repairs had been done. They cited a surveillance tape of Sammy Sosa spackling in the bleachers.
But seriously, how come I can't even redo my basement without the local revenuers looking for a handout, but the Cubs almost get away with refurbishing a well-known landmark on the sly?
