Description

The Schaumburg Boomers are a professional baseball team based in Schaumburg, Illinois, that began play in the independent Frontier League on May 18, 2012 with their first home game coming on May 25, 2012. Home games are played at Schaumburg Baseball Stadium. The Boomers replaced the now defunct Schaumburg Flyers of the Northern League after the franchise was evicted for not paying almost $1 million in back rent.

The "Boomers" nickname comes from a common nickname for males of the Greater Prairie Chicken species, a bird which was once abundant in the Midwest but is now a vulnerable species. That bird's nickname comes from the dance these males do in order to attract females for mating purposes. The Boomers carry on the mascot's tradition by performing a reenactment of the Prairie Chicken's dance in between innings during games.
