Mike Lansing Field in Casper, WY serves as the home for the Casper American Legion Baseball and beginning in 2018, the Casper Horseheads. The Horseheads are a team of the new wood bat summer collegiate league known as the Expedition League.

The name Oil City Stadium, which is built on land donated by Standard Oil Refinery, celebrates Whiting’s history as a refinery town for the past 120 years. It was built on the site of a former water filtration plant and Little League fields. Completed in 2011, the $8.5-million structure is home to the Northwest Indiana Oilmen (Midwest Collegiate League), Whiting Oilers and Calumet College baseball teams.
