Boomers Rained Out In Homestand Opener

The Schaumburg Boomers, presented by Wintrust Community Banks, saw the opener of a six-game homestand with the River City Rascals postponed due to rain on Tuesday night.

The rainout marks the first of the season for the Boomers, who were washed out just once last year. The rainout at home marks the first since May 30, 2015, also against the River City Rascals.

The series with River City will begin on Wednesday morning at 11:00 a.m. with a Grand Slam Kids Day. LHP Lars Liguori (0-0, 3.60) is slated to start for the Boomers opposite RHP Tim Koons (0-1, 9.00).

Thursday night will now feature a 21-and-over night doubleheader beginning at 5:00 p.m. No one under the age of 21 will be allowed in the stadium. Both contests will be seven innings in length per league rules. Schaumburg is 5-5 at home all-time in doubleheaders.
