The Windy City ThunderBolts and the Frontier League are proud to release the 2022 season schedule.  All 16 member teams will be active for the first time since merging with the Can-Am League two years ago after difficulties with the border forced our three Canadian clubs to sit out last summer.  After starting last season two weeks later than usual, the Frontier League's 96-game slate returns to it's traditional place on the calendar.  Opening Night 2022 will be Thursday, May 12th as your ThunderBolts will begin the year at Ozinga Field against the Joliet Slammers.

The league’s 2022 division structure will return to a two division East/West set-up.  The exit of the Southern Illinois Miners forces the return of the Frontier Greys, who will play as a full-time road team.  The East Divison features the Greys, New Jersey, New York, Ottawa, Quebec, Sussex County, Tri-City, and Trois-Rivieres.  The ThunderBolts will be in the West joined by Evansville, Florence, Gateway, Joliet, Lake Erie, Schaumburg and Washington.  Six teams will make the postseason in the league's revised playoff format. The top three teams in each division advance to the postseason.  The 2nd place team will host the 3rd place team in a one-game Wild Card Playoff.  The winner of that game will move on to the Division Series to take on the 1st place team in a three-game series for the right to move on to the best-of-five Championship Series.  The schedule format is unbalanced in 2022 as all teams will play every team in the league.  Teams will play their divisonal foes between 9 and 12 times, while playing the opposite divison opponents in at least one three-game series.

Opening Night of the 2022 season will be Thursday, May 12th at 7:05 pm against Joliet.  Normal game times will continue to be 7:05 pm starts Tuesday – Friday, 6:05 pm on Saturday and 2:05 pm on Sunday’s.  Our weekday 10:35 am morning day games are back with eight dates scheduled in 2022.  The four School Days are scheduled for May 18th, 19th, 25th, & 26th.  The three Splash Days will be on July 12th-14th.

The ThunderBolts are pleased to announce that our famous postgame fireworks will return each Friday and Saturday night in 2022!  The rest of our weekly promotional schedule will be announced very soon.  Giveaways and special theme night dates will be announced at a later time.

Group tickets such as Executive Suites, all-you-can-eat Picnics, and our popular #WinCity Party Patio will go on-sale Monday, January 10th.  Individual game tickets go on-sale Friday, April 1st at 10 am.  For more information, please call 708-489-2255.  We look forward to seeing you at Ozinga Field in 2022!
