Independent league baseball team to change name to 'Zombies' after successful Kickstarter campaign

Zombies Logo

On June 7, the Schaumburg (IL) Boomers, the reigning champions of the independent and professional Frontier League, will change their name to the Schaumburg Zombies, thanks to executing a successful fundraising campaign on Kickstarter.

The team exceeded its goal to raise $5,000 in order to host the event known as "Field of Screams." Schaumburg's promotion will go well beyond simply decorating the stadium and passing out free candy, but the club will undergo a complete makeover, complete with a new logo, custom uniforms, and wild ideas.

The money raised for the event will go toward purchasing new uniforms for the night, hiring local professionals to help with makeup, hiring actors to roam through the stadium and interact with fans, and even having one player literally rise from the grave before the game. Wait, what?

Sounds like it should be a lively night.
