Fans of Indiana University and the Gary SouthShore RailCats are encouraged to join the Indiana University Northwest Alumni Association at U.S. Steel Yard on Friday, July 23. The home team will take on the Lake County Fielders at 7 p.m.

Showing his school spirit, new IU Northwest Chancellor William Lowe will throw out the first pitch.

Prior to the game, the most profitable RailCats giveaway of the year will occur; the first 1,000 fans will receive an envelope filled with cash. A total of $2,000 will be passed out, with five fans winning $100!

The alumni association will also host a raffle; one lucky IU Northwest guest will take home a basket filled with IU items. Discounted IU Alumni Association memberships will be available at the game.

Stick around following the game to enjoy a post-game fireworks show.

IU Northwest guests should enter the park through the main gate.

Tickets are $9 each and can be purchased by contacting the IU Northwest Office of Alumni Relations at (219) 980-6769 or alumninw@iun.edu.

U.S. Steel Yard is located at One Stadium Plaza in Gary, Ind. To learn more about the Gary SouthShore RailCats, visit railcatsbaseball.com.
