We expect to have some clear image files shortly, but here's a screen shot of the logo of the newest team in the independent Frontier League: the Schaumburg Boomers.

As you can tell, a Boomer is some sort of bird; we expect a fuller explanation later.

The new team will play at Alexian Field, the former home of the Schumburg Flyers (independent; Northern League)

How can a team in Schaumburg be anything but the Mallrats. Dumb. Dynamite identity they're missing out on.

No kidding. I submitted that name probably within 5 minutes of finding out that they were taking submissions. I grew up in Schaumburg, and the mall is what put that place on the map. Mind you, I think that Studio Simon did a really, really nice job with the Boomers logo, but it's such a wasted opportunity.

I've lived in Illinois- granted, an urban part- my whole life and I had never heard of a Prairie Chicken/Boomer. It's a nickname that educates. :)

I don't really like the crossed bats, but at least they didn't include a baseball somewhere in the logo. That's progress.

I live ten minutes from Schaumburg and have been extensively through Illinois and I have never seen nor heard of this type of animal. Turkeys, coyotes, hawks, deer, ground hogs, yes. Prairie chickens, never. Weird choice.

Judging from the wikipedia page most of the species in Illinois was hunted into extinction.
