John Peterson stood waiting with other workmen atop the left-field roof last April, watching the helicopter hover carefully above the workers at Wrigley Field.
If the cargo that the chopper carried didn't fit the secured fixtures down to the last nut and bolt, then there would be nothing but headaches for Peterson, vice-president of David Architectural Metals, and the dozens of others who had worked so hard and so long to let there be light at Wrigley Field.
"There's a sense of satisfaction that the whole thing is coming to a close," said Don Grenesko, the Cubs' executive vice president for business operations, who has long been at the forefront in the six-year battle to light up the night. "It's tough because of the nostalgia, but also there's a deep sense of satisfaction. We can save Wrigley Field. Now it's here forever."
