Cubs take down "No women allowed" retro sign in press box area


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs have been busy updating and renovating many parts of Wrigley Field in preparation for today's home opener against the Pirates.

A Cubs 1945 retro sign that said "No women allowed" was briefly hung on the press box walls before being taken down on Monday afternoon. Antique art has been in style, but sexism shouldn't ever be.

Since it was tweeted about by various reporters, the Cubs replaced the sign with a picture of the Wrigley Field bleachers during a 'Pink Out' game.

This was a lack of judgment by whoever was hanging artwork as this was certainly a dumb move.
