Mizzou Baseball in the Minors

■ As reported here earlier, former Mizzou first baseman Cody Ehlers (01-04) was selected by the Lake County Fielders (Zion, IL) in the Northern League expansion draft. You might be interested to know that the owner of the Lake county Fielders is none other than Kevin Costner. From the home page:
“I've seen many opportunities over the years to be involved in baseball projects, but this one is really special. The location, the people involved, and the chance to offer families in Zion and the surrounding communities a quaint and affordable setting for minor league baseball means everything. Like that unforgettable movie line says, ‘This field, this game, is a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good, and what could be again.’ Play Ball!” ~ Kevin Costner, Owner
