Kane County Cougars showcase excellence in sports and entertainment

As Summer Break approaches, it is customary for students to begin making plans with friends and family to fill the next three months. For many, one of the most exciting and beloved summer traditions is to attend a baseball game. Most students know that there are two major league teams only a train ride away, although there is also an option for those who may want to save money or are concerned about travel.

Located in nearby Geneva, the Kane County Cougars play at Northwestern Medicine Field as one of the single-A affiliations of the MLB’s Arizona Diamondbacks. Although the average baseball fan will not likely recognize most of the names on the current roster, some of the team’s notable alumni are two-time former A.L. MVP and current Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera, as well as Chicago Cubs favorites, catcher Willson Contreras and outfielder Kyle Schwarber.

Currently, the team features several up-and-coming stars. Shortstop Jasrado Chisholm and outfielder Gabriel Maciel are ranked #3 and #10 respectively in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ farm system according to MLB.com’s 2018 Pipeline Prospect Watch.

In addition to the baseball itself, the Kane County Cougars are unique in that their games include several unique events and fun activities to keep people entertained. Some of the promotions they include are Thirsty Thursdays and Kids Eat Free Sundays. The team also hosts pregame concerts on select Saturdays and the inclusion of fireworks on certain dates.

The team will also feature a collaborative concert under the title “Rockin’ For the Troops” on July 14. It will feature the combined efforts of The Voices, 7th Heaven, Ayla Brown, Rocky Lynne, and Ryan Weave in honor of our US military.

If you’re worried about costs and expensive seating, the Kane County Cougars have you covered. The stadium includes lawn seats closer to the field that only start at nine dollars.

The Kane County Cougars not only represent the sportsmanship required for any sports team but also showcase the entertainment value that even non-sports fans can enjoy. If you’re interested in finding out game dates, check out their website and the calendars below.
