I have been working on a Steele's Alumni page and in the process of updating it... I want to do it for a some of the players that got a chance to play in this organization. Denny Helmig and Gary Coates started the organiztion Steele's Sports Compnay....Denny's friend John Brenner joined in with the Franchise and then Dave Neale got Helmig and Brenner to bring the sporting goods company to Grafton, Ohio. Grafton was a small country town 30 miles west from Cleveland.

After the great 1990 season that the Steele's Silver Bullets had in early spring we were forced to shut the team down.. It was In 1992 when Dave Neale and Denny Helmig decided to have another softball team.. They knew it was the best way to promote softball especially with Steele's line of softball bats.
