The Lake County Fielders are a minor league team from Lake County, Illinois, just north of Chicago. Their claim to fame? Part-ownership by Mr. Field-of-Dreams himself, actor Kevin Costner. Last week the Chicago Sun-Times reported the organization is having major management problems right now, including, most recently, a massive roster change by trading nine players and releasing fourteen more. Awful Announcing reports that earlier this month a few LCF players and former MLB manager Tim Johnson quit the team after managing partner, Rich Ehrenreich, wasn't able to write paychecks. Kinda makes us wonder if Costner's pockets aren't quite deep enough or if he'll step in to save this fledgling minor league organization. Sports business 101, for all your aspiring owners: Pay your players. Not only are they your employees, they're the only reason you have a business in the first place. The team also hasn't been abe to pay their play-by-play announcer Qumar Zaman, so he quit in the only way he knew possible: Live on-air. The rant is pretty awesome.
