History

Crestwood, IL; August 13, 2007 --- The Windy City ThunderBolts and Standard Bank and Trust Co. announced that Hawk Ford Field will now be known as Standard Bank Stadium. Built in 1999, the former Hawk Ford Field was home to the Cook County Cheetahs until 2004 when the team came under new ownership and became the Windy City ThunderBolts.

Crestwood is home to the professional minor league baseball team. The Windy City ThunderBolts are an independent team competing in the Frontier League. The stadium holds up to 3,200 people and features one of the few upper decks in a minor league ballpark. The stadium also features a fan deck on the first base line, a kidís zone, catered picnic areas, skybox suites, concession stands and a beer garden.

On September 4th, 2007 the re-naming ceremony took place before the start of the first play off game against the Rockford RiverHawks. Tim Gallagher Chairman of the Board threw out the first pitch to a nail biter of a game. The T-Bolts tied the game in the bottom of the 9th and the winning run was walked in during the 10th.
