Fans say they’re becoming more and more pleased with what they have seen on the field. But they remain split over the renovations to Wrigley Field.
Despite the team’s dreadful start, the Cubs’ season attendance topped last year’s, finishing around 2,650,000. That’s an average of nearly 33,000 a game, the 11th best in the majors, and an increase of roughly 9,000 fans in total from 2013.
Some fans say next year could be the year for the Cubs, who last won a pennant in 1945 and haven’t won a World Series since 1908. Others have expectations that are not quite so high, but all expect next year’s team to finish higher in the standings.
