Chicago Cubs Apologize For Lengthy Bathroom Lines During Home Opener

The Chicago Cubs are apologizing for lengthy bathroom lines, even by Wrigley Field standards, at this team's home opener Sunday night.

"Opening Day at Wrigley Field has constantly brought challenges with wait times and tonight had been particularly extreme, " Cubs spokesman Julian Green said within a statement after the game.

Two bathrooms in the top deck "went down temporarily" and also forced fans downstairs "where we all already were experiencing problems with long wait times, " Green stated.

The statement didn't say why the bathrooms were closed and Green couldn't be reached Monday morning.

Many fans took to social websites to complain about the specific situation.

“I’m all for upgrading, but I’ve now missed 2 innings trying to get in to the bathroom, ” stated James Hillebrand in a tweet, directing it towards the Cubs’ official Twitter webpage. “Get your act together. ”

Another Cubs supporter, Tim Powers, encouraged individuals to “lay off the beer [and] stay away from the restrooms. ”

Green recognize that "with 35, 000 fans appearing in the ballpark tonite, we were simply not able to handle guests during peak periods. We have high standards for service and also we missed the mark tonight.

"We want to apologize to the fans for the difficulty tonight, " he included. "Moving forward we plan to supplement the existing bathrooms with additional portable units and definately will continue to monitor wait times. "
