The players for the Joliet Slammers and Windy City Thunderbolts aren’t the only ones providing fireworks at Joliet’s Silver Cross Field Friday night at 7:05 p.m. That’s because Northern Illinois University is sponsoring the July 20 fireworks night as part of its season-long partnership with the Slammers.
“Will County is an important area in our region,” says NIU director of marketing and communications Brad Hoey, who forged the relationship. “Having a presence in Joliet through a partnership with a great organization like the Slammers allows NIU to remain top of mind for potential students and their families when considering their choices for a high-quality academic experience at a student-centered research university. We invite fans to visit us at the game to find out more about the opportunity that awaits them at NIU.”
NIU Admissions representatives will also be on hand at Silver Cross Field to answer questions and provide information about the university to interested students and families.
Tickets for Joliet Slammers baseball start at $5 for lawn seats and can be purchased online at www.jolietslammers.com or at the Silver Cross Field box office, located at 1 Mayor Art Schultz Dr. in downtown Joliet. Directions are available online.
