The Scouting Report
In their second season as a franchise, the fledgling Schaumburg Boomers accomplished something that some teams never achieve: they won a championship. After making the playoffs in 2012, the Boomers boast a two-year resume that places them among the Frontier League’s truly elite clubs.
On May 23, the 2014 season opens up with a cosmic burst to celebrate not only the dawn of a new season, but the Boomers status as defending champions. A post-game fireworks show will follow all three games against the Freedom, illuminating home-run balls that may still be hanging in the air. To further celebrate their fans, the Boomers offer a free meal for kids on Tuesday’s opener against the Grizzlies.
On May 25, 2012, in front of a crowd of 6,067 fans, the Schaumburg Boomers revived professional baseball in the Northwest suburbs with a 5-2 victory over the Florence Freedom. The game set a winning precedent for the organization to build upon during its inaugural season and beyond—and build on it they did. In their maiden season, the Boomers posted a winning regular-season record and earned a playoff berth. The next season, they sent a message to the Frontier League, seizing the championship in only their second year as a franchise.
The Boomers’ arrival also meant a return to action for Schaumburg’s stadium: a facility that was erected in 1999 to the exact dimensions of Wrigley Field. Now operating under the name Schaumburg Boomers Stadium, the park packs in more than 7,000 visitors who are allowed to run the bases after every game, and is home to free parking and such promotions as Fireworks Fridays. The stadium also has lawn areas along both foul lines, where fans stretch out to catch any pop flies or windblown umpires that sail out of play.
“Great time! Close to home, reasonably priced, and family oriented!!”
