Are you a baseball fan who doesn’t have the moolah for family seats at Wrigley Field? Come see the Windy City Thunderbolts and have a ball! Opening Day is Friday, May 12 against the Minnesota Wild Things. The Normal CornBelters arrive on the 23rd, and The Gateway Grizzlies will be there for Memorial Day Weekend.
There are special days every day of the home schedule. Tuesdays are $2 ticket nights! On Win it Wednesdays, if the Thunderbolts win, you win – it doesn’t say what. Thursdays offer $1.50 Bud Lights and after-game wrestling! Saturday games always end with Fireworks! And Sundays? Sundays are for families. On Sundays, you get four tickets, dogs, sodas, hats, autographs and an after-game reptile or petting zoo, for $50!
The Frontier League is not affiliated with Major League Baseball, but scouts come to the games. 23 players have been signed to contracts in the Big Show, including pitcher Dylan Axelrod who plays with the Cincinnati Reds. This is not an old guys league. Rules permit only one player over 28 to play with each team.
The Standard Bank Stadium, home of the Windy City Thunderbolts, is located at 14011 South Kenton in Crestwood. For advance tickets and a full schedule of games, go online to http://www.wcthunderbolts.com/ and follow the prompts.
