An agreement has been reached that will keep the Lake County Fielders baseball team in the North American League, at least for this season.

Last week, financial troubles forced the team to cancel a scheduled trip to play in Hawaii.

At that time it appeared the team might be dropped from the league.

Monday night, the Chicago tribune reported the league and the team have a new agreement that will allow the team to stay through the rest of the year.
