It was the fourth All-Star held in the stadium; the first was in 2000.RenovationsIn 2008, the stadium underwent a $10.5 million renovation project that added a second level seating area, covered concourse, and skybox suites among other amenities. It finished in time for the start of the 2009 baseball season.In 2014, the Cougars announced that additional capital improvements would be made in time for the 2015 baseball season, including a climate-controlled cage that will also have a weight room and a video-room, allowing access for Cougars and field staff to develop and evaluate players. Also under construction is a high-definition videoboard, which will show promotions, highlights, and instant replays, as well as construction of a premium seating area on the lower-seating bowl area of the ballpark. A pavilion will also be erected to be used predominately for music during game-day, as well as events such as the Cougars' Ballpark Concert Series and non-game-day events, as well.

  • Great time at the park. have to go on THIRSTY THURSDAY otherwise beers are as much as they are at Wrigley

  • Attended a Kane County Cougars game at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark, 34w002 Cherry Ln, Geneva, IL 60134 and had an awesome time! This is a fun place to go with a couple of friends or even a large group. Lots of family friendly activities are on tap and lots of special nights are held at the ballpark.
