(CHICAGO) - It'll cost you up to $350 per ticket, but Chicago Cubs fans will have a chance to watch their favorite team in person -- though it'll be from across the street -- on one of the many iconic Wrigley Field rooftops. The city of Chicago has approved the rooftops for 25% capacity. Most of the rooftops beyond left and right fields are owned by the Cubs, who are still figuring out how to disperse tickets. Several privately owned rooftops already have tickets on sale, including one in left field called Wrigley View Rooftops that is advertising tickets at $350 -- or $250 on Sundays. That includes food, beer and wine. Rooftop tickets generally go for between $150 and $300, with a boost for playoff games. For upcoming games, CDC guidelines will be followed, including temperature checks before anyone enters the building. Opening Day is sold out, but tickets remain for the rest of the Cubs' opening series. Players might not be able to hear the cheers from up there, but they will from their own sound system. The Cubs are one of the teams experimenting with piping in crowd noise, as they did during Tuesday's intrasquad game. Besides crowd noise, the Cubs piped in chants of "Let's go Cubbies" and "Javy, Javy" when shortstop Javier Baez came to the plate. Schwarber was asked if he likes the fake crowd noise.
