Along 66, October 2017: Baseball and a Canyon
OCTOBER 21-- The baseball stadium in Joliet, Illinois, is to be renamed the Joliet Route 66 Stadium. The name change may nor occur right away because of costs. It is now called Silver cross Field and is home to the Joliet Slammers, an independent baseball team.
Maybe change the name of the team to the Joliet 66ers?
