Bandits, Jennie Finch to break ground on new Rosemont Stadium
 
ROSEMONT, Ill. - The first stage of Bandits owner Bill Sokolis’ dream is finally coming true. On Friday, November 5, the Chicago Bandits, Jennie Finch and Rosemont Mayor Bradley A. Stephens will break ground at the location for a new fastpitch specific stadium that will become the permanent home of the Chicago Bandits women’s professional softball team beginning with the 2011 season. 
 
The new stadium will be located at the NE corner of the Bryn Mawr Avenue and Pearl Street intersection in Rosemont, east of O'Hare International Airport. The ground breaking ceremony is scheduled to start at 12:15 p.m. and is open to the public. 
 
Retired Chicago Bandits pitcher Jennie Finch will be on hand to share in the historic moment. A moment she has no doubt helped pave the way for with her illustrious career by bringing notoriety to the sport. 
 
“It’s been a long time coming,” said Bandits Owner Bill Sokolis. “We’ve tried different locations, and Rosemont really stepped up to make us feel like this should be our home. It’s beyond words how great this is for the team, the NPF and the sport as we plan to use this new facility to continue growing the sport of softball.”
 
The ground breaking ceremony is open to the public and everyone is invited to see Finch, Sokolis and Stephens break ground on this historic new stadium. A nearby address is 5500 Pearl Street, Rosemont, Ill.
 
For any questions regarding the ground breaking ceremony, contact Andrew Phillips at 630-297-3991 or by email at aphillips@chicagobandits.com. Due to time constraints, Finch will not be available for autographs. For more information about the Chicago Bandits, visit www.chicagobandits.com
