The Schaumburg Boomers have stepped up to the plate for their inaugural season in the independent Frontier League, touting a record well above .600 and a spot atop the league’s West Division. Throughout three matchups—including a game against defending Frontier League champions the Joliet Slammers—the team showcases both its seasoned talents as well as its rookie players wielding freshly whittled bats. To date, pitcher Cameron Roth boasts a sub-2.5 ERA in 40 innings pitched, and third baseman Frank Pfister has racked up a .333 batting average and eight homers through 31 games.
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 and challenges fans to out-dress him during superhero/villain night on July 13. On July 8, the first 1,500 fans in attendance receive complimentary water guns, distributed for use in a postgame water-gun fight. And on July 25, kids eat for free, and all fans will receive mystery envelopes filled with secret contents (spoiler alert: leaving milk out for too long results in spoiling).
