Getting it Fired Up for the 2017 Season

The long wait for Railroader baseball is about over, as the new batch of players prepare to begin the season on the road in Madisonville. The 5th place standing for the 2016 season ensured Fulton would have to travel for game one. The Railroaders have never played their first season game away from Fulton, although in 2013 & 14 they were scheduled to play at Dubois County but were rained out before the games began. A road win to begin the season would be a nice start! Friday, in Fulton, the Railroaders will play the Miners again.

The OVL has expanded again adding their 8th team, the Henderson Flash, and now organized into 2 divisions, East and West. Should make for interesting post-season play when the time comes. New OVL website also, looking forward to enjoying that as well. New head OVL scorekeeper and webmaster, which I proudly congratulate!

The crew this year looks good, and the coaching staff lead by Drew Martinez appears excited to get the Railroaders back on track after a lackluster 2016 season. Expectations are high in the Twin Cities area for a great summer of baseball. All is ready at the Yard and there are improvements on the field to boot. It all starts this Friday night at 7:00 pm with Opening Night at Fulton against the Miners. I’ll be there along with Boilerstoker to get things going. Come on out or listen/watch online with Railroaders TeamLine.
