History will be made tonight as the Schaumburg Boomers take to the field for the first time in front of the home fans with a 6:30 p.m. game against the Florence Freedom.

Plenty of excitement surrounds the opening of Boomers Stadium including a pair of pregame ceremonies as well as fireworks and a pair of giveaways plus all of the in-game fun of entertainment and of course baseball.

The Boomers return from the first roadtrip of the season with a 3-3 record after falling in last night’s finale at Windy City 6-2. The tying run was in the on deck circle in the ninth inning before the ThunderBolts recorded the final out to pick up the win.

LHP Cameron Roth (1-0, 0.00) draws the assignment of pitching the home opener. Roth will face Dan DeSimone (0-0, 0.00) who will make his season debut with Florence.
