All Star break . . . the weekend is over

The 3 doubleheaders weekend are over. We went into it a ½ game behind the Greyhounds and come out 1 game ahead. Thank you’s go out to the Firebirds for beating the hounds 2 of 3, we’re glad you enjoyed your stay in Union City, sorry you didn’t find easy pick’ins in Fulton. I’ve looked over the stats for the Railroaders over this weekend’s 4-2 set for games and one interesting number standouts. 5 homeruns: an increase of 38% over our total going into the weekend, from 13 to 18. Also 5 doubles included in the 36 total hits. What the stats don’t show is the high caliber of defensive play witnessed by cheering fans over the three days. If the guys keep this up, the dogs are going to have hard time catching us.

Good luck to the All Stars and their game today. Tomorrow the Railroaders assault the Pirates in their port. Only 2 days of battling there and we want the wins! Thursday begins our last 3 home games and the regular season. It’s the Bulls coming back to town and will try to chase us around. See you at the ballpark this week!!!
