Rosemont plans to build ballpark for independent league baseball team

Plans are underway to bring an independent league baseball team to the northwest edge of Chicago, with a target of May 2018 "to throw out that first pitch," Rosemont mayor Brad Stephens said.

The village is partnering with Shawn Hunter and Steven Gluckstern, who plan to launch and own a new team. Construction of a $55-million, 6,300-seat baseball stadium is planned for the corner of Balmoral Avenue and Pearl Street, just west of I-294. Funding for the ballpark was approved by the Rosemont board of trustees on Wednesday, Sept. 14, and work on the site was scheduled to begin by the middle of October.
