Appearances are an essential part of the Chicago Bandits community outreach efforts and provide the team the opportunity to generate positive impact throughout Chicagoland and its surrounding communities. Giving back to the community allows the Bandits to support a variety of organizations, which in turn can help those in need. If you are interested in having a member of the Bandits participate in your event, please review the following guidelines and submit the above player request form.

Making a Request
The following policy has been developed as a way to create consistency and fairness to the organizations that ask for the Bandits participation in area events. Due to the demands of travel, work, games and practice, the schedules of Bandit players and coaches are extremely limited.  We will do all we can to accommodate the request

A minimum fee may be required for the appearance ($75 for first hour; additional hours $50).  Each appearance must be a minimum of one hour and can be no longer than three hours.  Appearances lasting longer than three hours can be negotiated.


  •  Request must be received at least 21 days prior to the event date by using the appearance request form
  •  Include typed directions from 27 Jennie Finch Way to the event (please, no internet maps)
    -Please note that appearances more than 60 miles from The Ballpark at Rosemont may result in an additional fee

Completed request forms may be emailed or mailed to:
Chicago Bandits Pro Fastpitch
Attn: Alex Flasch
27 Jennie Finch Way
Rosemont, IL 60018

The Bandits will follow up with a phone call to all requests received. Please allow at least two weeks for processing. The Bandits ask that telephone inquiries regarding appearance status are not made due to the high volume of requests received. All appearance decisions made by the Bandits are final.

The Chicago Bandits reserve the right to cancel an appearance at any time due to player/coach/mascot/family conflicts, emergencies, illness, traveling conflict, etc.

If your request has been accepted, you will be required to sign and return the player appearance form. If changes are made after this time, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate the changes.
