California company purchases Rivets Stadium

LOVES PARK, Ill. (WIFR) Rivets Stadium has new owners after a California company purchased the grounds on Dec. 28.

The home of the Rockford Rivets was sold by Northside Community Bank to River Rock Properties of Illinois, LLC for $820,000. That is just 17 percent of what the stadium cost to build prior to its opening in 2006.

The Rivets have played in the Northwoods League since 2016.

The owners say that the Rivets will continue play in 2018.
