Championship Round begins at the Yard

The Hoppers coming to the Yard tonight to take on our Railroaders in the first game of the championship best of 3 series. This will be the final Home game in the Yard for 2012 as the Railroaders will go to Hoptown for game 2 and game 3 if needed. SO...we need all Railroader Fans out tonight to support the Railroaders as they begin their run to the Post Season Title. 

The Railroaders handed the Hoppers 6 of their 12 losses on the season, better than any other OVL team. With a 6-4 record for the Roaders against the Hoppers, Fulton is hoping the trend continues through the final playoff series. One thing for sure, the Railroaders are Fired UP and ready to play. The press box is also ready as Rattler and Boilerstoker will join me to shake things up and stoke the fire, keeping the steam pressure up and the train rolling down the track.

Fire it Up and Roll Train!

Playoff Do or Die Tonight at the Yard

After the loss last night, what else can be said? No need to discuss the woeful errors that did us in, other than let's don't do it again. Time to focus and get it done right tonight! The Pirates brought their crew of fans to support them and a few Railroader fans were there to counter. We need all hands on deck today to back our guys up. Time to shake off the disappointment and look ahead. We're not out it, far from it. The loser tonight goes home and the winner goes forward to the final 3rd championship round. Who will it be? My money is on the Railroaders!

Fire it up, and keep it Hot!

Boilerstoker will be there to stoke the fire!

The Battle continues tonight

Close game last night until the Railroaders fired a board side in the 10th to get the victory over the Pirates. But it's now over yet. The Bucs sail into Fulton tonight to attack the Railroaders at the Yard. Its the second game of the best of three in the second round of the Post-Season Playoffs. Our guys are up in the series and can finish off the Pirates with a win. Both teams play real tough together, so there is no reason to expect it to be any different tonight. 

The Hoppers also won their first of best of three in Marion last night against the Bobcats. Now the No. 1 and 2 teams must defend their home fields against desperate teams trying to stay alive for a post season title.

We need the win tonight earn a spot in the championship round and a day's rest before it begins. Time to call out all hands to the yard and help the Railroaders get it done today.

 Fire it Up!
