In 2011, the Slammers capped their inaugural season by rising from the ashes of the now-defunct Joliet JackHammers to claim the Frontier League championship. This year, after finding itself in the middle of the West Division pack, the team seeks to narrow its games-behind margin in a series against the Florence Freedom. Infielder Abel Nieves touts one of the top batting averages in the league, and pitcher Steven Maxwell maintains a sub-2.80 ERA, selflessly saving home plates from the getting shattered by runners’ cleats. Following the games on July 3 and July 4, postgame fireworks displays honor Independence Day, entertain fans, and trick a local parliament of owls into thinking the sky wars have begun.
