Extra bases

• According to a report, the Cubs plan to add 56 prime box seats in 2013 by moving the brick wall three feet closer to the field. Crain's Chicago Business reported Tuesday that the proposed changes will be on the agenda of the permit review committee of the Commission on Chicago Landmarks on Thursday. Theo Epstein, Cubs president of baseball operations, said Tuesday he was not privy to the information.

"I would probably want to sit down and study it," Epstein said. "I don't see it as a big deal, one way or another if it's only a couple of feet, but we'll see."

The Cubs added three rows of seats behind home plate before the 2004 season.
