Movie “star” Kevin Costner is part of an ownership group that will establish a new independent league team (unaffiliated with MLB and the minor leagues) in Zion, Illinois, near the Wisconsin border.
The team will be part of the Northern League in 2010. Officials didn’t announce the team’s name or the location of the new 8,000-seat stadium in Lake County.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CROPS??? THEY’LL LOSE THE FARM FOR SURE!!!
Costner says Zion is the ideal spot because of its “quaint and affordable setting.” State officials say the project will bring 300 jobs to the community of 25,000.
Great. Can’t wait for the promo campaigns. A baseball player stands in an empty stadium with another man, awestruck by his surroundings. “Is this heaven?” “No, are you retarded?”
