The Chicago Cubs will play their final home game of the 2014 season Wednesday night, the last game before a giant video screen is installed at Wrigley Field.

The $575 million renovations of the 100-year-old ball park are expected to begin sometime over the next few days.

The walls along Kenmore Avenue will be torn down to make way for the major changes in the outfield.

By opening day next April, the Cubs hope to have a brand new video board in left field and a new Budweiser sign in right field.

The bleachers will also be remodeled.

Other parts of the renovations, including the new bullpens and locker rooms, won't be completed until after the 2015 season.

The Cubs plays the St.  Louis Cardinals Wednesday night at Wrigley Field at 7:05 p.m.
