New bleachers open at Wrigley Field

 CHICAGO (AP) - Sections of Wrigley Field's iconic bleachers are filled with fans for the first time this season.
    
The outfield seating had been closed to the public while work continued on renovations for the cozy neighborhood ballpark. But the Chicago Cubs opened the bleachers in left and center field for Monday night's game against the New York Mets.
    
Among the first people to make it to their new seats was long-time Cubs fan Christopher Sorlie, who sprinted to his spot, yelling the whole way. Sorlie says "You just feel the energy in the crowd today - it's unbelievable."
