JOPLIN, Mo. -- The Joplin City Council will vote Monday on an agreement for construction at Joe Becker Stadium and nearby areas.

Starting next summer, Joe Becker Stadium will be home to the Joplin Blasters, an Independent League baseball team formally known as the El Paso Diablos, owned by the Suarez brothers.

The city is required to spend up to four million dollars to renovate the stadium.  The construction agreement would generally deal with parking improvements around Joe Becker Stadium.
