Steve McQuail was signed by the Boomers after appearing in 32 games for the Arizona Diamondbacks organization during the 2015 season.
A key piece of the Boomers 2013 Frontier League championship, McQuail finished in a tie for fourth overall in the Frontier League with 20 home runs on the 2012 season despite playing in just 69 games with Schaumburg during the Boomers 2013 championship season. The Boomers slugger belted a home run every 3.45 games or one every 13.15 at at-bats
McQuail, 25, hit a homer in his first game as a member of the Boomers on June 17, 2012 and didn’t stop hitting the ball over the fence. Despite a full month less than others on the home run leaders list, McQuail’s 20 bombs was good enough for fourth amongst Frontier League sluggers. McQuail finished with a .251 batting average with nine doubles and 57 runs batted in playing primarily first base and designated hitter for Manager Jamie Bennett in 2012.
