We have spent over 9 years
developing and maintaining
our field in Glenwood, IL.
It’s a lot of work and there
is still a long way to go.
The goal has been and still
is to use it for practice
for ALL ages and to play
games for all of our teams.
This field when completed
will greatly enable the
ILLIANA THUNDERBOLTS
program to grow, save
money on field rentals,
and generate revenues
through concessions.

2019’s excessive rain and
2020’S craziness has
created a situation where
the field NEEDS WORK!

Thunderbolt Field is
located at
19051 S. Halsted
Glenwood, IL.

The playing field is part
of the Living 
Springs
Church complex.

The field is situated just
to the south
east of the
church parking lot.

(Cannot be seen from
Halsted Ave.)

The Thunderbolts have been
practicing at this field since
2012 and have been methodically
improving it during that 8 year
period to the point where we are
VERY CLOSE  to RESUME playing
games here.
