Frontier League Named as Partner League of Major League Baseball

The Schaumburg Boomers, presented by Wintrust Community Banks, a member team of the Frontier League, a Professional Baseball League of 14 teams throughout the US and Canada, today announced they are now a Partner League of Major League Baseball (MLB).

“We welcome the Frontier League as a Partner League and look forward to working with them toward our shared goal of expanding the geographic reach of baseball,” said Morgan Sword, Executive Vice President of Baseball Economics & Operations, MLB.

"The Frontier League is thrilled to become an official Partner League with Major League Baseball, signifying perhaps the greatest watershed moment and milestone in our League history to date,” said Bill Lee, Commissioner of the Frontier League. “Needless to say, this new association enables us to extend the fan experience and expand the great game of baseball in all of our markets in the United States and Canada.”

“I am very excited that the Frontier League was named a Partner League with Major League Baseball!” said Patrick A. Salvi, CEO and Owner of the Schaumburg Boomers. We look forward to collaborating with Major League Baseball to grow the game of baseball in Schaumburg as well as throughout the Frontier League.”

The Frontier League, as a designated MLB Partner League will collaborate with Major League Baseball to jointly discuss marketing and promotional initiatives to grow, expand, and enhance the game of baseball.

The Schaumburg Boomers have been a part of the Frontier League since 2012 and have won the Frontier League Championship on three occasions: 2013, 2014, and 2017. While 2020 did not have a Frontier League season, the Schaumburg Boomers hosted the Chicago White Sox Taxi Squad during the 2020 MLB season.
