You have Wrigley Field come to you.
For diehard Cubs fan Shaun Witt, all it took was re-purposing some wood from one of his dad’s home building projects, leftover paint and “about $200” to bring the Friendly Confines to his home in Oklahoma.
My final COVID project. I ran out of letters and patience. Not perfect but close enough for me. pic.twitter.com/Z5L9ErBUIQ

Yeah, that’s a hand-crafted replica of Wrigley’s iconic, hand-operated scoreboard fashioned into a portable (didja notice the wheels?) TV stand.
And the feedback? Oh…you better believe it was positive.
An astute eye will notice Witt’s favorite player, Hall of Famer Andre Dawson, is at bat and Kerry Wood is on the mound for the Cubs. And thanks to some ingenuity (and Amazon), you better believe that that clock actually works too!
Not to be all “what’s next?” about it, but if Witt is looking for inspiration for his next project…remember Griller Park?
Something tells me a hand-crafted grill in the shape of Wrigley Field would be the perfect complement to what is already one of the best things to come from this weird baseball season.
