Crestwood, IL – The Windy City ThunderBolts have announced the release of the team’s 2007 season schedule. The ThunderBolts begin their fourth season of Frontier League baseball at home against the Rockford RiverHawks on May 23, 2007. Opening Night at Hawk Ford Field will feature a special postgame fireworks display.

By popular demand, regular postgame fireworks shows have been moved back to Saturday nights for 2007. The ThunderBolts have eight Saturday home games and there will also be a special fireworks show on Wednesday, July 4. Miller Lite Thirsty Thursdays are back with $1.00 draft beer and fountain soda. There are eight Thursdays on the schedule.

ThunderBolts home games on Monday through Saturday will start at 7:05pm. The two exceptions are School Day on Tuesday, May 29 and the Big Splash Extravaganza on Wednesday, July 25.

The Southern Illinois Miners are building a new stadium in Marion, IL that will be ready for the season in May. The as-yet-unnamed Slippery Rock, PA franchise will play at Jack Critchfield Park on the campus of Slippery Rock University.

The ThunderBolts will compete in the new Central Division against the Rockford RiverHawks, Kalamazoo Kings, and Traverse City Beach Bums. The West Division is made up of the defending champion Evansville Otters, Gateway Grizzlies, River City Rascals, and Southern Illinois Miners. The East Division will feature the Chillicothe Paints, Florence Freedom, Washington Wild Things, and Slippery Rock.
