Schaumburg Boomers Stadium is a stadium in Schaumburg, Illinois, formerly known as Alexian Field. It is now home to the Schaumburg Boomers of the Frontier League which began play in May 2012 and captured the first-ever professional baseball championship for Schaumburg in 2013. It is primarily used for baseball, and was the home field of the Schaumburg Flyers baseball team from 1999 through 2010 before the Boomers resurrected the facility for pro baseball in 2012.Schaumburg Boomers Stadium opened in 1999 and the park holds 7,365 people for a baseball game or over 10,000 for a concert or other non-baseball event. Its field dimensions mimic those of Chicago's Wrigley Field, and the land the stadium is built on was originally purchased in the mid-1980s as a hopeful site for the New Wrigley Field, had the City of Chicago and the Chicago Cubs not come to terms to bring night baseball to the North Side. Some pro lacrosse as well as professional and amateur softball has also been played at Schaumburg Boomers Stadium due to the late start (mid-May) of the independent baseball season.The Stadium itself is located west of I-355 off the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway. Now called Schaumburg Boomers Stadium, the Alexian Brothers Medical Center in nearby Elk Grove purchased the naming rights to the ballpark in 2000. The Stadium was host to the Schaumburg Flyers from its opening through the end of the 2010 season. At that point, the village and park district which owned the stadium began eviction proceedings against the Flyers for failure to pay $551,800 in back rent. On February 24, 2011, a Cook County court ruled the Flyers could be evicted, ordered the now defunct team to pay the back rent, and the naming rights contract was terminated when there was no professional baseball played in the park in 2010.

    The ball park is small and nicely kept up. It was hard to find the souvenir store, and the souvenir choices were just alright. The hot dog was below average for a ballpark dog, but not terribly priced...  more »

    Went to see the Boomers play on the 3rd --- great game --- tied 3-3, went into extra innings - Boomers won 4-3 in the 10th. Followed by a great performance by the Jesse White tumblers and a super fire...  more »

    We go to 3-4 games each year. It is affordable and always fun. Seems like they always win. Beer and food prices are good for ballpark standards. Be sure to buy tennis balls. The reason not 5 star is food quality could be better.

    Been to a couple games and I always marvel at the low cost to come in and enjoy myself. If you don't give a rip about baseball, no matter. There are plenty of food and drink options including an array of craft beer. Yeah the prices aren't that cheap but they are average for a sporting event at any level. I'll be back.

    Coop is my son's favorite! He's great with the kids. It's nice because you get the feeling experience with every game. Our boys love to run the bases. Love the bounce houses for the kids.

    Family friendly from the moment you drive into the parking lot until you are back in your car. How can this place be so gr8? It's a little slice of baseball heaven.
