2017 ThunderBolts' Schedule Released

CLICK HERE FOR THUNDERBOLTS 2017 SCHEDULE

The Windy City ThunderBolts are pleased to announce their 2017 Frontier League Schedule. This will be the 25th year for the Frontier League and the ThunderBolts' 19th season in the circuit.  League divisions will remain unchanged from last season. The schedule is balanced again with each team playing six home & six road games against teams within their division and three home & three road against teams outside tier division.

The ThunderBolts will start the season at Standard Bank Stadium for the fourth consecutive year when they take on the Washington Wild Things, Friday, May 12th. It is the 12th time in 14 years that Windy City will open the season at home. The ThunderBolts have a heavy May again, as 12 of their first 15 games are at home.  After having two 9-game homestands in 2016, the ThunderBolts will not have any this season.  However the road will be long in 2017 as this year features a 13-game road trip in May/June and a nine-game trip to finish July.

A major change from years past is the amount of home games to finish the season.  For only the fifth time in the last 14 years, the ThunderBolts will finish the season in Crestwood.  21 of the final 30 games of the year will be at home.  The ThunderBolts also will be home on both Memorial and Labor Day Weekend for the first time ever. 

The ThunderBolts added an additional weekday morning day game in 2017 with the continued success of those unique games.  A record high nine weekday morning games are featured: five School Day Games on May 16th - 18th, 23rd, and 24th and finally four Big Splash Days July 18th-20th and August 2nd (all game times are at 10:35 am). 

Game times for all night games and weekly promotions will be finalized and announced very soon. Our full promotional schedule with giveaways and special theme nights will be announced at a later time.  The Windy City ThunderBolts open their 2017 season on Friday, May 12th against the Washington Wild Things.  Group tickets such as our Executive Suites and All-You-Can Eat Picnics will go on-sale Monday, October 10th.  Please call (708)489-2255 for more information and we look forward to seeing you at the ballpark in 2017!
