After going 2–0 in their first games of exhibition play, the Schaumburg Boomers step up to plate for their inaugural season in the independent Frontier League. Throughout three matchups—including against West Division rivals the River City Rascals—the team showcases both its seasoned talents as well as its rookie players wielding freshly whittled bats. Infielder Gerard Hall earned his stripes as a 2011 Midwest League all-star after racking up 14 doubles and four triples with the Kansas City Royals’ low-A affiliate, and outfielder Sean Mahley hopes to repeat his .378 batting average and 14 stolen bases over 45 games last year as a senior at the University of the Cumberlands.
Located in Schaumburg, Boomers Stadium was built in 1999 to the exact dimensions of Wrigley Field, both to pay tribute to Chicago’s iconic stadium and to trick Harry Caray's ghost into finally footing his 17-year-old Cracker Jack bill. The team's mascot Coop, an indigenous prairie chicken, pumps up fans for postgame fireworks on May 27 and defends his honor against The San Diego Chicken’s antics during the game on July 2.
