2012 Season Comments

The Season is finally over and the 2012 Railroaders provided Fans with exciting moments. Fulton had great talent on the field this year. There were more Railroaders receiving leadership titles in the OVL than any other team. Starting slow at first, the Railroaders came back in the second part of the season and at one point won 12 games straight. Although falling one game short in the Post Season Playoffs, the Railroaders never gave up and continued to play hard for Fulton. 

We'll miss each one as they return to their collegiate efforts and hope to see them again in the future. Best of luck to every player, coaches Ricky Gerena and Matt Hochstatter, and manager Albert Destade. We salute your efforts and thank you for another great year of baseball in Fulton at the Yard.

Down to the Wire

Despite the six errors the Railroader continued to fight back and fell short by one run in Sunday's game against the Hoppers. The simple solution for tonight's final deciding game is the elimination of mistakes. Two unearned Hopper runs were the difference in the game. Let's get it done correctly tonight and go home with the Playoff Championship Title. The Railroaders have it them, I know. 

Regardless of the outcome, I'm proud of the whole team. Even though we had a slow start to the season, they came back strong and have proven in my book to be champions. The Hoppers a good, but not as good as they think they are. The Railroaders still have a 7-5 overall winning record against them. We know who the better team it. But tonight will decide who take the glory in the Playoffs. Let's "Fire it Up" one more time and take the game today!

Up 1-0 in best of 3 Final series

The Railroaders hit the road to Hoptown today leading the series 1-0 with the big win on Friday against the Hoppers. The Hoppers are desperate now and must win the final two games at home. The Railroaders have the upper hand here and need to remain "cool" as they head out to spoil the championship run by the Hoppers in their house.
Last night's game was full of tension and controversial calls. Emotions ran high on both sides. But the Railroaders need to remain calm and focus tonight as the Hoptown crowd will be hostile towards them. If the Railroaders can just Ignore their rude comments and we come away with the victory. The Railroaders are playing better ball at the plate and can complete the season with the Playoff Title. Its time to take advantage of the Hoppers and finish them off!
Fire it Up and Let's get Rolling!
