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 atmosphere. Awesome fireworks when they have them. Theme nights are always fun. Not too expensive for game and food. Great beer selection.
  • 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.
  • Great ball park. Nice food courts. Seating is never too far from anything. Parking is fantastic
  • Brought my a couple of my kids to their first ball game. What a treat. It was a beautiful stadium where even our cheap seats afforded us a wonderful view. The game was fun, the crowd cheered along, and the kids had a great time.
  • Eating, drinking and socializing while in the outfield decks is a wonderful way to spend am evening. Plenty of activities just outside it to keep little ones entertained as well.
