A member of the Frontier League, the ThunderBolts are a professional baseball team not affiliated with Major League Baseball. They play from mid-May through early September at their home field, Standard Bank Stadium in Crestwood.

A visit to the park is often a fun interactive experience where you can sit close to the action and see the players up close and where there are a number of fun family-friendly promotions during the season. Some of the weekend games this season include petting zoos, hands-on reptile exhibits and princess characters.

Refreshments tend to be cheaper than big league ballparks and you can get special $2 ticket pricing to Tuesday games during the 2017 season. On Sundays, a family package of four tickets, hot dogs, sodas and hats is just $40 and there’s an opportunity for postgame autographs and catch on the field.
