In 1980, a group of amateur teams from around Northwest Indiana created an all-star team to compete in America League. They coined themselves "The Region SC" and created a rat skull logo as a nod to the locals, sometimes referred to as "Region Rats."
The team has primarily been in America 3, but did spend some time in America Two in the late 90s. They have a rivalry with Oak Park, but their supporters hate Chicago North the most. They don’t get to play them much, but when they do its always a physical battle.
