Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott is proud to announce a deal struck between Midwest Collegiate team, the Michigan City Lakers, and the City of Hammond Park Department, which allows the MC Lakers to lease Hammond’s south baseball field, located in Riverside Park, for use by this franchise for the 2016 MCL Summer Baseball Season. For years, this franchise has played all their home games on the baseball field at Purdue North Central, located in Westville, Indiana. This baseball field has recently become unavailable to the Lakers franchise, leaving them without a field to play their 2016 home games. That is when representatives from the Midwest Collegiate League approached Hammond city officials about allowing the Lakers to play their home games in Riverside park, in Hammond.
