Fan Cave: Inside John Adams baseball head coach’s basement


NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- With only students and staff allowed inside the stadium, more fans will be spending game day at home!

That’s why we’re taking this opportunity to highlight some of the best Fighting Irish fan caves right here in Michiana starting with John Adams head baseball coach Mike Cass’s.

 “It started over many years ago. Little bit here, little bit there.”

The basement of Cass’s home is a haven of Notre Dame memorabilia from a Lou Holtz signed poster, to a Heisman trophy football and a full bar set up.

“I have a 1924 program with the four horsemen in it, I have a Montana signed jersey, I have over here a 1988 national championship individual cards with each player.”

The fan cave came to life back in 2009 when Cass bought his home in Granger.

“The first thing we did was do the basement.”

Priorities right? The basement has since become a place where Cass and his friends and family frequent on game days.

“The Clemson game last year when we were in the semifinals, god, we had 35-40 people down here, before coronavirus virus.”

But the coronavirus has obviously changed things. You can find Cass and his game day crew set up in their front yards this season, making the best of the restrictions brought on by the pandemic.
