CHICAGO, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- The Chicago Cubs say they have ordered new granite to fix the damage to the Wrigley Field statue of announcer Harry Caray caused by a construction crew.

Cubs spokesman Jason Carr told the Chicago Tribune a vehicle being used for renovation work at the stadium ran into the base of the statue, causing a crack that ran through the inscription Liberty Bell-style.

The mishap occurred less than three months after the team moved the statue from the corner of Addison and Sheffield -- where it had been originally placed in 1999 -- to Sheffield and Waveland as part of a makeover for this month's football game between Illinois and Northwestern.
