Windy City Thunderbolts
Baseball fans will want to come to Opening Day for the Windy City Thunderbolts minor league baseball team at Standard Bank Field in Crestwood, May 10, and stay at the nearby and affordable Motel 6 Chicago Hotel in Tinley Park!
One writer’s opinion: Minor League baseball is more fun than Major League Baseball. The setting is more intimate, the bread and circuses are a lot more fun, and man, is it cheaper!
The Windy City Thunderbolts team is in the Frontier League, with teams stretching from Kentucky to Michigan and Pennsylvania to Missouri. The Frontier League is an independent league not affiliated with a major league team. But scouts come to the games, and the Cubs, Mariners, Royals and White Sox all have players that started with the Windy City Thunderbolts!
