Weather Permitting


Fulton is ready if rain keeps heading southeast, Madisonville should be good if field conditions are good.
A big game scheduled tonight at the Yard with the first place Oilers flowing into Fulton for a match up against the fourth place Railroaders.  Owensboro leads the season series 5-3 with Fulton, and the Railroaders are 7 games behind the Oilers.  The Hoppers and Bombers are wedged between in 2nd and 3rd with the Railroaders trailing the Bombers by a half game.  The Bombers are scheduled to play the last place Miners in Madisonville tonight.

With only 12 games left in the regular season, each game is more important now than ever.  The Railroaders must get wins and move up in the standings with time running out.  Post-season playoff positioning is the issue here if the Railroaders want to play at home more during playoffs than travel.  I know what the Fans want, and I’m pretty sure the players feel the same way.

After both league ballgames were rained out last night, the question remains one of weather and whether or not we’ll see action this evening.  I’ve just been to the Yard and the field looks ready to play in spite of early morning thunderstorms.  The colder front, behind that which pasted through a few hours ago, is in the northwest and moving southeast.  I think there may be a good chance we will be spared the heaviest of the rain later today, and if only light rain falls our way we should be ready for tonight’s contest.  But of course, one can never completely predict Mother Nature, and we'll learn more this the afternoon as game time gets closer.  The good Lord willing though, we'll have a great ballgame in the Yard tonight.

  1. The weather looks great at the Yard an hour before game time. A bit of a chance later for a passing, short lived shower.

  2. Hi gentlemen! You're coming in clear as a bell. Sorry my computer is a bit slow tonight but it could be the 97 degree temperature here in Oregon. I think I heard an unfamiliar name in the RR lineup, who is this Reed Johnson kid? I'm very happy to have him back in the action. Let's play some ball!

  8. I noticed the Baker kid is back this year. He was really solid when he was with us previously. I think he can really help us. What are your thoughts?
