Cubs vice president Mike Lufrano says the employee found the palm-sized piece of concrete before Wednesday's game between the Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds. It's the third report of falling concrete at Wrigley in less than two months. No one has been injured.

The team says beginning Friday engineers will conduct a thorough inspection of the ballpark. A Plainfield man says a brick-sized chunk of concrete fell from a tier above his family after a Cubs game last Friday, nearly striking his five-year-old son.

Buildings Commissioner Stan Kaderbek says another fan reported to the city on June Ninth that he saw falling debris along the first-base side.
