We've been meaning to go to a Schaumburg Boomers baseball game for the longest time, and earlier this summer we finally made it out. And while we've been to the Schaumburg Boomers stadium before for an Easter egg hunt, we'd never been to a game. We were excited to say the least!
Address: Schaumburg Boomers Stadium, 1999 Springinsguth Road, Schaumburg
Parking: FREE with their own parking lots
Cost: Tickets are very affordable and start at $7 a seat.
- A nice stadium where every seat is a good seat. The stadium is pretty clean overall and there are a few options for seating.
- The lawn area looked like a nice spot to hang around. Hilly with picnic tables and lots of grassy areas for kids to run around.
- Very affordable especially on Sundays with their Family Sunday Pack: $39 for 4 Tickets, 4 Hot Dogs and 4 Sodas. The Family Sunday Pack MUST be purchased over the phone or in person at the Boomers Box Office.
- Kids area with a bouncy house, a giant slide, and an obstacle course. Great way to keep the kids occupied if they start getting antsy. $2 if part of the Kids Club.
- Special events throughout the summer. We visited during Harry Potter Night and saw a few people dressed up. Other fun themed days include Star Wars night or even the fun Marshmallow Night? Check out their schedule here.
- Fun between innings. Plenty of entertainment to keep everyone entertained. My kids has such a laugh watching these people "jousting."

Did you know?
- The stadium's playing surface has the same dimensions as Wrigley Field.
- The Boomers have won the championship the last two years in a row (and the team has only existed for three years).
