CHICAGO, July 13 (UPI) -- Chicago's Bohemian National Cemetery plans to construct a replica of Wrigley Field's centerfield wall to store deceased fan's ashes, the project's creator said.
Dennis Mascari, who created the "Beyond the Vines" memorial, said he wants to secure a dozen restored Wrigley Field seats to be used in funerals or reflective moments at the memorial.
"Going to visit loved ones at a cemetery is pretty sad and depressing. Here, you'll see your loved ones in a home away from home. They're back at the ballpark," Mascari said.
Deemed "skyboxes for the afterlife" and "an eternal season ticket," the memorial will stand 24 feet tall and feature a stained-glass representation of crowds cheering at a game, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Sunday.
People will have to fork over anywhere from $1,200 to $5,200 for spaces to place their loved one's ashes at the site, which will store as many as 280 urns, the newspaper said.
