Shock Therapy

Now that I've received my treatment, I think everything will be okay. Of course I waited until after the game last night to take it, didn't want to alarm anyone in the stands above. It was a hot night for temps and cat bats. And although the oven in the Yard will be on again tonight, I think we can fire up the engine a little further and build up pressure a bit more, ya think? While the field is hot, the grandstands were quite cooler, in more ways than one. It's time for the Fans to get with it tonight. The Relay for Life was last night and we still had 200 at the game. Tonight is Chamber of Commerce so there be more out to Yard to support the Railroaders. One thing I can say good about last night was the Food! Man those BBQ sandwiches with slaw were some of the best scrapes I every eaten.

Time to get the Train rollin'

Well it's near time to get the Railroaders 2011 season ride underway. There appears to be a fine squad of Railroaders assembled for another winning year and a run for the first ever OVL championship. The first opponent this year is the Marion Bobcats. The Bobcats were 22 wins - 26 loses overall last year and had a 16-24 record with the league only. The Railroaders were 27-14 overall in 2010 and 29-15 within the league. Head to head in 2010, the Railroaders were 8-2 over the Bobcats. Marion's club is now under a new manager as are the Railroaders. It will be an interesting opening game for both team. I can hardly wait, and think I'll head to Yard now to at least see if the food is cooking! Sure to be pently of Fans out tonight, so the dropping will be pentliful. See you at Game!

All Abroad

I hear you, Boilerstoker! It’s about time to load up the train and get this show on the road. And we welcome back Rattler who has return from the great northwest. I hope there is room enough for all 3 of us to be part of the Railroader crew. I'm not sure management will put up with us too much, but we are good at eating up the leftovers.

These 2011 Players are lookin’ good and I think we can expect some exciting baseball this season. They practice looked good today and I'm already starting to believe in these guys. Even in the heat, their were going at. They seem to quickly adjust to the Yard and I'm sure they'll be ready for the Bobcats on Friday.

It’s great to get back to the Yard, the field is in good shape and the grandstand is ready. The smell of freash Railroader Dogs will soon fill the air, and with the players and fans we’ll begin the season tomorrow in grand style. I'm really looking forward to the nachos!
