MiLB: Peoria Chiefs at Kane County Cougars

1 July 2009 No Comment

For the second time (three times if you count the postponed game) this season, I went to see the Kane County Cougars play. Today they hosted the Peoria Chiefs.

One great thing about Minor League Baseball is being able to see Major League players in a small ballpark when they are rehabilitating an injury. For example, three years ago, the Ultimate Sports Wife and I were attending a Lancaster JetHawks (of the California League) game and saw Craig Counsell in a rehab assignment. Today, I was hoping Aramis Ramirez would make a rehab start since he is scheduled to return to the Chicago Cubs shortly. No such luck though (however, he is scheduled to appear on Friday at Kane County).

Obtaining Tickets
As opposed to the game I attended in April, the Cougars had their lawn seats on sale for $8. They also sell $10 and $12 tickets. I bought a lawn seat knowing I would be able to sit in the $12 seats anyway.

The Game
Once again, it was kid’s day at Elfstrom Stadium. This is probably a sign I should not be attending these games, but it is a good way to spend an afternoon. This time there were a few more paying adults than there were in April. The Cougars took a 3-0 lead after the 3rd inning and held onto the 3-2 win.
