Gary SouthShore RailCats TicketsThe Gary SouthShore RailCats are members of the American Association and have been since 2011. When the team initially formed in 2002, they played as a part of the Northern League, but when that league merged with the Golden Baseball League and the United Baseball League to form the North American League, Gary and three other teams departed to join the American Association. The RailCats' first season saw them play all 90 games on the road as they had no home stadium for their inaugural campaign. The RailCats made the postseason in their last six seasons with the Northern League before their transition. By the 2013 season, their third in the American Association, the team had established themselves as a postseason squad again and won the league championship. After a brief playoff drought, the Gary SouthShore RailCats have made the American Association playoffs in two of their last three seasons.
