As we left Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, we had a 2.5 hour drive to reach Geneva, Illinois. Geneva is located in Kane County, in the western suburbs of Chicago. Geneva is the home of the Kane County Cougars of the Midwest League.
We arrived in Kane County at 2:00 PM. Our early arrival allowed us several hours of afternoon rest at our motel before attending an evening ballgame. On this evening, we’d see a class A Midwest League ballgame featuring the visiting Beloit Snappers vs. Kane County Cougars.
The ballpark in Geneva, Illinois was easy to find and the seating was comfortable. The home team’s fans didn’t have much to cheer about tonight as Beloit defeated Kane County, 2-0. Box Score
