The Railcats are a minor league out of Gary, Indiana and the kids love the whole thing, the cheering, the snacks, the dancing, the singing Take Me Out to the Ballgame in the seventh inning and of course running the bases at the end of the game, which my daughter came in third running in her flip flops!
Their ultimate favorite part by far are the mascots that are a couple of crazy cats named Rusty and Rascal who have a great time competing against each other between innings and playing tricks on each other.
Also they like to ham it up!
Each of the kids acquired a ball at the last game we went to over the holiday weekend - one has only Rusty's autograph and the other has only Rascal's if that says anything about their love of mascots...my daughter also wanted to know if Rusty was wearing his underpants.
