"All Aboard" for 2014 Railroader Baseball

Just a week away before Opening Night at the Yard for the 2014 Season.  Seems like just yesterday the Railroaders ended the 2013 season with a big victory over the Hoppers in Hopkinsville and took the post season championship.  Next Saturday a new set of Hoppers will come Fulton to face a new Railroader roster that looks pretty good on paper.  I'm looking for this years batch of Railroaders to carry on the momentum from 2013 into 2014.

The Railroaders will actually begin their season on the road Friday night going to Dubois County in Indiana to play the Bombers, another tough team.  I'll hop a train to get there in hopes the Boys can start off with a win. The last 3 seasons the Railroaders haven't seen a victory to begin the season.  Regardless the outcome, I know the guys will be finishing the season strong. This year though, we're looking for a stronger start in the standings to go ago with a great finish.  For 4 Years now, the Railroaders have ended the regular season in 2nd place.  In those 4 Post Season playoff series the Railroaders have won 2 championships.  Let's add a Season Pennant to go with a Post Season title in 2014!

On a few notes about the Yard this year.  The Railroaders Owners have made some improvements to help bring a better summer baseball experience to the fans.  I haven't seen the menu this year yet, but there'll be grilling I'm sure.  A new extension to the concession area promises to improve an already great menu selection. I can hardly wait for the smell of food cooking.  And TeamLine will be back for online audio coverage of home games along with added, optional live video streaming from the press box.

Hopefully everyone who is able will get out to the Yard next Saturday to help the Railroaders kick off the OVL season in Fulton.  See you there!
