On May 27th, the Fielders was nominated as the team's new name... in honor of the "Field of Dreams" which Kevin Costner of course starred in. The other possible names were the Cowpokes, the Luckies, the Comets and the Skippers. It looked so bright for this franchise, as the team took the field for the first time here on July 2nd for the Northern League. These photos were taken by the Lake County Fielders just hours before their inaugural game first time in Zion. This ballpark was meant to last the one season as the new ballpark would open in time for the 2011 season. Fans were welcome to enjoy the ballpark for what it was... a temporary gathering and the beginning of something "special".
