(CBS) The Cubs push for more night games this season at Wrigley Field has hit a snag after Ald. Tom Tunney said he would not push for new legislation at today’s City Council meeting.

Tunney, whose 44th ward encompasses Wrigley Field, said before he pushes for more night games, he wants the Cubs to address other issues such as parking, traffic and security issues in the Wrigleyville neighborhood.

The Cubs currently can schedule 27 night games and can add up to three more for national television purposes.

The team is looking to ease limits on night games, late Friday afternoon games, concerts and other non-game events that are part of a neighborhood protection ordinance, the Tribune reports.
