Chicago says the field will be named for Granderson, who played baseball for the university from 2000 to 2002. Construction on the new stadium, which doesn't have a final price tag and will have a turf field, will start in the fall. The stadium will feature about 1,200 chair-back seats and two grassy areas for spectator seating. In addition to being the UIC Flames home, the stadium will host youth league games throughout the spring and summer.
