U.S. Steel has bought the naming rights for the new 6,000-seat, $45 million minor leage baseball stadium
in Gary, IN, scheduled to open in June. Under a 10-year agreement, the home of the Gary Southshore RailCats will be called The Steel Yard. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The RailCats are one of 10 teams in the Northern League, an independent professional
baseball league that isn't affiliated with any Major League teams.
Additionally, U.S. Steel Foundation signed a 10-year, $875,000 grant to establish and fund the newly created Gary Baseball Foundation, which will support youth baseball in the city, reports the Pittsburgh Business Times.
