CHICAGO -  Say it ain't so, Joe.  Bleacher seats at Wrigley Field won't be ready for opening day.

In fact, it will be at least five weeks into the season before fans will be able to take their seats there.

Cubs execs confirmed yesterday that the left-field bleachers won't open until at least May 11.  The new target for the right-field bleachers is late May.

About 2,000 season ticket holders will be affected by the construction delay.

They can get a full refund for home games up to May 11, or have their seats moved to the grandstand for those games.

But the new video board in left-field will operate by the start of the regular season, with player stats and replays.

The right-field board should be ready by late May.
