A failed attempt to build a baseball stadium in Zion will play itself out in a courtroom.
The owners of the Lake County Fielders -- which includes actor Kevin Costner -- filed a lawsuit against the city last week seeking $10.7 million in damages, and specifically names Mayor Lane Harrison and others.
Grand Slam Sports and Entertainment claims the northeastern Illinois city misled the team about the prospect of building a ballpark and got up in politics and selfish interests.
Zion City Attorney Scott Puma declined to comment on the litigation.
The team and the city battled a few months ago over $340,000 in back rent for the baseball field the team was using since 2010, according to the Chicago Tribune.
