The City of Joliet has an agreement with the new owners of the Jackhammers baseball team.

The team will get a new name and play in the town's stadium under the terms of a new 10-year lease.

Joliet officials are also replacing the stadium's grass with a turf field. That would allow the facility to host concerts and other events.
