TeamLine tonight + Pink Out night

Big game tonight with Railroaders hosting the Owensboro Oilers who are just a half game behind the Railroaders. It is also "Pink Out" night hosted by Parkway Regional Hospital. The Railroaders are wearing special brown & pink jerseys which are being auctioned off with the proceeds going to "Relay for Life."

It should be good game between these two OVL teams as the Oilers try to take 1st in the standing away from the Railroaders. Let us hear from you while you're listening to us on TeamLine by making a comment to the post. "Play Ball!"

Update: $1145 was raised towards Relay for Life!

Glasscock Goosebump Statue

Boilerstoker and I have collected funds from all the great Railroader Fans, and we have ordered and received just the thing everyone is waiting on. Ole' Glasscock needs to be recognized for his closing abilities, as do all the players for great baseball playing. Now we just need to find a play to put this tribute. There's still a ways to go in the season and plenty more ball to play. Time to sprint to the finish line with wins. By the time we get there, we should have found a suitable place to set this heavy bugger down. We'll all be able to marvel at it and wonder how would we have ever gotten along without Glasscock.

Into the final stretch

As we round the final curve, there are only 9 scheduled games left for the Railroaders and they have a full head of steam. The Bobcats have a total of 13.1 games remaining on their schedule (1 game incomplete to be continued). Can the Cats pick up the pace and finish after leading for so long? The Oilers are on our heels, and could jump ahead anytime, and they have 12 games to get in before the end of next week. Let's don't lose sight of the Bucs either. Although they have fallen back in the race, 3 games out, there are 11 games left for them to surge and get back in it.

At this moment, I'm feeling good about our finish. We came out of the gate slow but have slowly work ourselves forward with a steady increase in speed. Now having played more games than any other team and above 500 with the most wins at 17 in the league, yea I'd say I'm positive on our chance. The Bobcats are in town Yard tonight, so let's head to the Yard for a crucial contest towards crossing the finish line first.

Everyone chasing the Cats

The OVL race is closing up tight. It's still any team's chance to win the season pennant. On any given day of play, the standings are shifting around dramatically. We're about to head into the final stretch and the baseball playing is going to be intense. The Railroaders have won 5 of their last 7 and looking much stronger as we head further into the 2nd half of the season. Big games this coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at Home in the Yard, followed by the final week with home games on Tuesday, Thursday (doubleheader), Friday and Saturday. Guess who we finish up with on the last night of the regular season? That's right, the Bobcats. Let's go Railroaders!
