We’d like to welcome the Windy City ThunderBolts to the Effort Family! The Windy City ThunderBolts are a professional minor league baseball team located in Crestwood, Illinois, and are entering our 19th season in the Frontier League in 2017. The ThunderBolts won the Frontier League championship in 2007 & 2008 becoming only the second team in league history to win back to back championships. The ThunderBolts are the minor league team of Chicago’s SouthSide and the Southwest suburbs. They were formerly known as the Cook County Cheetahs, but in 2004 received a new ownership group, name, mascot, and a new look at minor league baseball. The Cheetah/ThunderBolts franchise has existed since 1995. 2017 will be the organization’s 23rd season overall and in those years the club has gone through three leagues, three stadiums, two names, five playoff appearances, and three championships.
Effort: Performance and Rehabilitation will be the official sports medicine provider to the Thunderbolts organization. Welcome to Effort family Thunderbolts! Good luck on your upcoming season!
