  • The Perfect Swing
    Unlike an outdoor field, The Perfect Swing's more than 60,000 sq. ft. facility isn't ever affected by bad weather or movie crews shooting yet another inspiring comeback story. The sound of cracking bats and thudding balls fills the training space rain or shine year-round. Baseball and softball players face off against seven automatic pitching machines, which hurl balls at speeds between 35–70 miles per hour, while pitchers work their arms in 17 practice tunnels. The Perfect Swing also offers four indoor turf fields for year-round baseball, softball, and soccer. Shoppers who are looking to stock up on softball and baseball equipment can visit the on-site store. Athletes aren't left to swing and throw blindly, though. The Perfect Swing boasts a staff of more than 25 baseball and softball instructors, including many current and former professional players. During private and group instruction, these experts help students hone fundamental skills in areas such as hitting, pitching, catching, fielding, and agility. Instructors also lead outdoor baseball camps during the summer months.

Additionally, DVR controls allow viewers to pause and rewind live games, and a multi-game view option streams games in quad view, picture-in-picture, or split-screen layouts.

  • Stella's
    Outside, snow falls, wind rattles leaf-less branches, and winter blankets the landscape. Then the crack of the bat rings out. That sound of summer is available all year long at Stella's, which offers heated indoor batting cages in the winter and open-air outdoor cages in the summer. An onsite bats and gloves shop outfits players with stacks of Easton and Wilson A2000 mitts and Louisville Slugger and DeMarini bats. As the sight of pop flies and line drives keep summer always within reach, so too do the aromas of Vienna hot dogs, bratwursts, and burgers wafting through the air. Stella's restaurant also provides ball players and their families with homemade Italian ice and soft-serve ice cream. To celebrate turning another year older or finally getting zombie Babe Ruth on the team, Stella's offers party packages that include good eats, game tokens, and batting cages.

  • Schaumburg Boomers Schaumburg
    Located in Schaumburg, Boomers Stadium was built in 1999 to the exact dimensions of Wrigley Field, to both 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 themed events such as superhero/villain night. The fired-up wild fowl also doles out gate prizes such as water guns for use in postgame water fights, as well as mystery envelopes filled with secret contents (spoiler alert: leaving milk out for too long results in spoiling).
