ST. LOUIS -- Wrigley Field will nearly be back to normal with the opening of the left- and center-field bleachers on Monday.

Each fan in the bleachers that day will receive a pink T-shirt to promote breast cancer prevention awareness and celebrate moms and women everywhere who are survivors.

ST. LOUIS -- Wrigley Field will nearly be back to normal with the opening of the left- and center-field bleachers on Monday.

The opening of the left- and center-field bleachers will coincide with the Cubs Charities' "Pink Out," presented by Advocate Health Care. Each fan in the bleachers that day will receive a pink T-shirt to promote breast cancer prevention awareness and celebrate moms and women everywhere who are survivors.

Budweiser Bleacher tickets are available for sale, starting Tuesday, at www.cubs.com/bleachers, by phone at 1-800-THE-CUBS or at the Wrigley Field ticket windows. Fans can find more information about each Budweiser Bleacher group space and directions for booking at www.cubs.com/bleachers.

Wrigley Field's right-field bleachers are expected to open June 11. The bleachers are being renovated as part of the massive restoration at the 101-year-old ballpark.

Work will continue at Wrigley Field throughout May and June as the new spaces and additional amenities are completed, including new concessions and food offerings. The overall enhanced Budweiser Bleachers will be completed in early July. The Cubs will host a celebratory event on July 3.

A combination of portable and fixed concessions and vendors will be available in the bleachers starting Monday. The new Platform 14, an outdoor concession area located behind the scoreboard in center, is scheduled to open in early July and will offer expanded food preparation spaces and a larger variety of freshly prepared food items.

In addition to the expanded spaces and amenities, the Cubs and Budweiser have teamed up to present new Budweiser Bleacher Fridays on select dates throughout the season, which will feature pregame or postgame entertainment, exclusive giveaway items, special food and beverages and more.

This year's schedule is headlined by a postgame "Extra Innings Show" for all game attendees featuring Fitz and The Tantrums on July 10. Other Budweiser Bleacher Friday themes include a "Beach Bash" on May 29, "Country Day" on June 12, "Red, White and Brew" on July 3, "'90s Day" on Aug. 21 and "Singles and Doubles Day" on Sept. 18.

In addition to general admission seating, there will be new and enhanced spaces available in the bleachers.
