Disclosure: My family and I were invited as guests to attend a Chicago Dogs game. The following opinions are my own.

The Chicago Dogs are members of the American Association of Professional Baseball. Named after Chicago’s favorite and oldest culinary tradition, the ChicagoDogs’ logo features the colors and stars of the iconic Chicago flag. Home games are played at the state-of-the-art Impact Field located at 9850 Balmoral Avenue in Rosemont, IL.

The team is managed by former Boston Red Sox Manager, Butch Hobson, who brings more than 30 years of experience to Rosemont. Chicago Dogs games welcome fans of all ages for a one-of-a-kind experience where every day is fan appreciation day.   

The Chicago Dogs hosted a celebration at Impact Field on Opening Day, Friday, May 13, as they kicked off their fifth-year celebration. The players debuted new jerseys and acclaimed vocalist Wayne Messmer perform the National Anthem. Every fan in attendance on opening day also received a replica jersey t-shirt. 

We’ve gone as a family before and on a date night without to kids. This year it was just me and the boys as SkyWaitress was out of town. The kids had an absolute blast at the ballpark. We had ice cream, hot dogs, and played plenty of games in the kid’s area before and during the game.

“Our opening night will kick off a season-long celebration of five great years in Rosemont,” said Chicago Dogs owner Shawn Hunter before the game.

“We look forward to showcasing the continued growth and success of our team led by Butch Hobson, as well as unveiling new promotions that will surprise and delight our fans including another opening night celebration.” 

The player-worn jerseys were auctioned off at the end of the night in support of the Chicago Baseball & Education Academy (CBEA), which was founded by MLB star, Curtis Granderson. The CBEA brings together children of all backgrounds using baseball as a way to engage the youth and provides mentoring programs for children in the city of Chicago. 

“We are excited about our partnership with the Chicago Dogs and appreciate their great support,” said Granderson. “CBEA is dedicated to supporting the children of Chicago and believe baseball is for everyone. We strive to ensure that every child has what they need to succeed on and off the field.”   

Impact Field is a 6,300-seat stadium located in Rosemont at the intersection of Balmoral Avenue and Pearl Street, west of I-294, at 9850 Balmoral Avenue. The ballpark serves as the home of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball minor league team, the Chicago Dogs. Sponsored by Impact Networking, Impact Field offers a variety of different spaces and experiences for visitors including a private club, suites, field-level experience, and more. Impact Field has been voted “Best Independent Ballpark in America” by “Ballpark Digest” in 2018 and 2019.  

Fans can guarantee their seat to opening day through a variety of season ticket packages. Plans are available now at TheChicagoDogs.com or by calling 847-636 5450. Prices vary based on seat selection.
