Gary South Shore Railcats

Two years in the making, the most talked about and controversial plan in Gary is now a reality. And opening day was beautiful, except for the 8-4 loss in the 11th inning. The team takes it's name from the South Shore trains that glide past the outfield wall. See my travelogue, US Steel Yard, for more images and ruminations on Gary's attempt at downtown revitalization.

Gary Steelheads basketball - Gary
Gary Steelheads basketball

The Steelheads are part of the long-lived, seemingly impossible to kill Continental Basketball Association. The season runs from November to the end of March. Tickets range from $10-$14, a bit pricey for the quality of basketball in my opinion. Courtside seats go for $39 and are not even worth it.

The quality of play is pretty selfish and can be quite sloppy, but every once in awhile you'll see a play that'll make you say, 'Damn!' That's the CBA for you... and hey, what else is there to do during these cold Indiana winters.

The food is provided by local restaurants and is well priced and usually excellent.

Address: The Genesis Convention Center

Directions: One block west of Broadway, between 4th and 5th Avenues.
