Green screen. FOX inserts advertisements on it for the TV signal.

Can we get election results on there?

2. Cause it's Wrigley Field.
It's a strictly traditional ballpark, and I like that.

3. Don't you have to watch the game or something to see the sign???
The Cubs HAVE to win...it's in the CARDS...though not the CARDINALS? I am NOT a baseball fan..but I know one thing....Chicago is DUE for a win...when was the last time baseball fans tore up THAT city?

I have to start watching sports so I can figure out what you're talking about. :)

Congrats on the Cubbies.

5. They've been doing that for a while
Gets easier to see which ads are real and which are inserts, though the technical ability is amazing.

The point is WHY do it? I watch a game and as the years go by see more and more adverts. I look at the name and don't ditzily think "Gee, I'm going to use their service just because I saw their name on the telly." Anybody who does that must be a dimboid*...
