Baseball fans have an incredible variety of baseball teams to choose from to catch a fantastic game along the South Shore.
Watch the Munster Centennials or Deep River Grinders vintage baseball teams play according to rules written in 1858, when courtesy prevailed on and off the playing field. The teams play barehanded and follow the rules of gentlemanly behavior - no spitting, arguing, cursing or wagering. It is common for members of both teams to encourage and applaud the good play of each other. Centennials' home games are played at Centennial Park in Munster and Grinders' home games are played at Grinder Field at Deep River County Park, across the river from Wood's Mill. Both are free and suitable for the entire family.
Fans can catch a lively and entertaining professional baseball game at the U.S. Steel Yard, home of the Gary SouthShore RailCats.
