June 10-11: Bolingbrok, Illinois at Bolingbrook Recreation and Aquatic Center located at 200 Lindsey Lane Bolingbrook, IL
Boston Returns to Chicago for the first time since 2013. Outside of the World Series, this is the biggest event in the league. Eight teams will be competing over 2 days. Each team is guaranteed to play four games each. Three games on Saturday and one game on Sunday. This will be the Renegades 9th trip to Chicago. The team has not fared well here in the past with a 10-22 record overall. However, most of these games were played when the Renegades were a newer, inexperienced team. Will things be different? We will find out in May who our opponents are. You can be sure these teams will be looking to put a target on our back. In 2016, Boston walked off twice on Colorado and beat Chicago for the first time in history. The Indy Thunder also faced us twice in 2016 beating us to win the national championship Below is a look at our 7 possible opponents and our lifetime record against them with their 2016 National Ranking

This will be the biggest beep baseball tournament in the history of New England. Never before has there been 6 teams converged in New England to battle it out for the Beast of the East trophy. This event will be a continuation of the games played in Lincroft, in early June. The format is to play the two games against opponents whom we did not play in New Jersey. This will give every team 5 games. From there the top seed will face off against the two seed. Three will play four. Five will play six. Last year, we had five teams competing but this season, we added the Rochester Pioneers to the mix. Below shows how these teams fared in Beast of the East competition and the World Series last year.
