During the Gary SouthShore RailCats' inaugural season in 2002, the players spent an estimated 200 hours on buses?traveling approximately 12,000 miles without their own ballpark to call home. Indeed, the diamond at U.S. Steel Yard was still under construction, forcing the team to play its entire first season on the road. But while the trip could have been a rocky way for an organization to start out, it instead forecasted a wild ride ahead in which the RailCats never stopped moving. After just four years, the RailCats captured their first Northern League title, marking the first of five straight appearances in the championship series?a Northern League record.
Despite that first year away from home, the RailCats seem to have settled in well at U.S. Steel Yard. Within the park, views of the South Shore commuter train remind fans of the team's origins, and a 55-foot scoreboard towers over left-centerfield in much the same way early pitchers once towered over batters from atop a stack of milk crates.
Before expanding to five locations, the owners of the first Zoom Clean found that they couldn't get the results they wanted with just any old soaps and waxes. They soon tracked down a chemist, who glued the periodic table to every doorknob and helped them develop their own innovative line of cleaning products. The resulting detergents, shampoos, polishes, and protectants now cleanse chariots of all shapes and sizes?including semi-trucks, motorcycles, limousines, and boats?to a glossy shine in Zoom Clean's touchless automatic washes, DIY bays, and hand-wash stations. Z Clean 2-in-1 Powder, a highly concentrated multipurpose mixture, protects paint jobs by reducing friction during washing. When they aren't buffing and waxing autos in their detail center, resident technicians perform diagnostic checks, install 3M Window Film, and restore cloudy headlights. They can also steam-clean interiors, scour engines, and refill parched oil tanks.

South Gleason Golf Course tests players with an 18-hole layout that stretches across more than 6,300 yards of bent-grass greens. The par 71 course originally opened in 1928, shortly after experts figured out how to domesticate golf carts. Players have since flocked to the public links ever since to take on its various challenges, including several holes riddled by water hazards. Away from the course, visitors can work on their short game at an on-site putting green and chipping area. They can also collect pointers from the facility's teaching professional and celebrate low scores at its full-service bar.
