The Steel Yard
The RailCats are hovering around .500 in the American Association standings and struggling at the ticket window, so it's time for drastic measures.
As 2002 started, I was excited to go full blast towards getting the RailCats off the ground.
In March 2001, my wife and I sat in our car looking at a cleared patch of land with a few dilapidated houses left standing in downtown Gary. This was the site of a proposed baseball stadium that was to bring America's pastime to Gary.
