Mesa mayor gives update on Cubs' stadium construction
Mesa Mayor Scott Smith gave an update on Tuesday about the Chicago Cubs' stadium construction and the Oakland Athletics move to Hohokam Stadium.
Press, mostly from Chicago, received a tour through the partially completed facility a couple weeks ago.
"The thing that surprised everyone is that Wrigleyville West is much more than a baseball stadium," said Smith.
Smith also said they have been keeping their promise to protect Riverview park and are actually taking it to a new level during all this construction.
The Mesa City Council approved the agreement with the Oakland A's, who will be moving into Hohokam Stadium in 2015.
