Controlling our own Destiny

What does the future hold?
Three games left with the Hoppers, 3 1/2 games behind them, 14 total games to go.  The race for the season pennant remains close and any of the five top teams could pull it out.  What's a Railroader to do?  WIN Baby, WIN!

The Railroaders have arrived at an important moment in the season.  Two of the three remaining games with the Hoppers begin tonight at the Yard, and tomorrow in hostile Hoptown.  Winning these games is the best chance for the Railroaders to secure their position in the pennant race.  Owensboro is only 1 1/5 games behind us in third, and followed close by Madisonville 2 1/2 and Dubois County 3 games back.

Wins both tonight and tomorrow keep Fulton in second place and will gain two games on Hoptown.  Tough act as the Hoppers are riding a six game winning streak.  They are playing will winning the close games or blowing out opponents with huge scores.  The Railroaders have shown they can do the same, however the last three losses were by only 2 runs, games the Railroaders couldn't pull out.  Coulda, woulda, shoulda, heck, no time left now to continue that trend!

The moment and time is now for the Railroaders to bring it up notch.  It's simple, we'll need help from other teams if we don't control the Hoppers in our remaining game against them.  See you at Yard to watch the Railroaders Fire It Up once more for a run towards the finish.

  1. For Note: There is team picture now on the Railroaders website via the Roster Page. Just clink on the small team shot and you'll get the larger one. Afraid it's not as good as I'd hope. The time set was mid day and shadows on the fades. Sorry 'bout that, we need a team photographer!

    1. There have been some floating strike zones the last few games. Last night we could have complained as much as there coach. Tonight I think the coach was just trying to fire his players up. He went out looking to get tossed.
