The new Lake County Fielders baseball team from Zion, IL, has been making a lot of news lately. The 2010 expansion team for the independent Northern League, of which Kevin Kostner is an owner, just hired Fran Riordan as the field manager. Riordan was the winningest manager in the Frontier League history this year before joining the Fielders for the 2010 season, which will have 100 games beginning on May 20, 2010 and running through September 6, 2010.
Visit the Lake County Fielders website to take a peek at the stadium, see where they will play and to get in on some great ticket prices for next season. There will also be many job opportunities, especially as the 2010 season gets closer.
So are you looking forward to having baseball come to Lake County? Don’t be shy. Those who leave comments are known to live longer lives. (or at least that’s what we say to get you to leave one!)
