The Chicago Cubs are currently searching for an alternate stadium to call home for the 2013 season if the Cubs management decides to do significant renovations to Wrigley Field, according to a report by NBC 5 Chicago.  Sources connected with the Cubs deny the rumors, but the Cubs ownership have openly voiced their desire to significantly revamp the 96-year-old stadium.

Reports in the past have stated that the Ricketts family, principal owners of the franchise, are interested in extensive renovations to the Wrigley Field clubhouse, offices and facade, as well as constructing multiple buildings in the surrounding areas.

Sources at U.S. Cellular Field have reported the White Sox ballpark may be "busier than usual" for the 2013 season.
