Pat and Lindy Salvi of Chicago, IL purchased a 100% stake in the Gary SouthShore RailCats in April 2008.

A lifetime baseball aficionado, Mr. Salvi decided it was time to enter the world of minor league baseball and purchased his first team, the Gary SouthShore RailCats, in 2008. After finding much success with the RailCats, including reaching the playoffs in each of his first three seasons, Mr. Salvi expanded his enterprise to include a 100% interest in both the Schaumburg Boomers (Frontier League) and the North Shore Navigators (Futures Collegiate Baseball League), as well as a minority interest in the Martha’s Vineyard Sharks (Futures Collegiate Baseball League). Under Mr. Salvi’s leadership and direction, the mission of Salvi Sports is to combine family, fun, and baseball to provide an exceptional level of affordable family entertainment in a safe and enjoyable atmosphere.  This will be the RailCats 15th season in the league.
