Final Comments for 2014

Well the season is over and although it didn’t turn out quite the way we were hoping, it was still a great season.  The Railroaders finished the regular season play in second place, their 5th year in a row to do so.  As usual Fulton was slow getting started then moved up quickly and became a force to be reckoned with.  The players gave the fans some thrilling games to watch and developed lasting friendships.  They will be missed and we hope to see them again in the future.

The owners, management, and fans say “Thank you” to all 2014 Railroader players and wish them the very best in their education and baseball endeavors.  We hope they enjoy some time off now before going back to school and it’s well deserved.

For those who wish to express their thoughts on the 2014 season, this is the place to do it.  Leave your comments here, and thanks again to the fans and everyone involved in bringing baseball to Fulton.


  1. Congratulations to all the Fulton Railroaders players and staff for a great season. Each and every one of you should be proud of how you played the game and also conducted yourselves on the field. A shout out to my Tacoma boys, Reed Johnson, Jeremiah Spring, Cory Main, and Justin Vernia. Have a safe trip home gentlermen. I also appeciated and enjoyed listening to all the games on the audio stream. Thanks to the Fulton Teamline announcers John, Josh, and Ted! Especially to you John who took great pleasure in describing the delicious smells and tastes of the food at The Yard. You made me hungry for a cheeseburger every broadcast! Congrats again Railroaders and good luck in your future endeavors which I hope include playing baseball somewhere. #RollTrain

  2. Would like to echo the thoughts of Sherrie and congratulate the Railroaders on an excellent season. Even though Connor did not get to join the team until later in the season, Vince and I were lucky enough to take in several games at the “Yard” and we would like to take a moment to say thank you to the ownership of the Railroaders. Whenever you walk into any business establishment these days more times than not it is the management of the entity that will make or break it. How well the establishment is run (even when the product is good) will have you wanting to come back for more or not come back at all. We already miss Railroader baseball…
    The atmosphere at Lohaus Field is as baseball should be…fun. The field is kept in tip top shape and with the “Little Monster” has its nuances that make it unique. The stadium is not only historic but along with the surrounding grounds kept spotless and in great shape. The fans are a big part of the wonderful atmosphere at the park…they are very friendly but also passionate about their team. And then the smells, as Sherrie mentioned, when John says “Man something really does smell good”… I know it has to be the steak sandwiches. Any ballpark would envy the concession stand offerings and the smiling faces that work there.
    Finally, it is obvious with all the effort the owners put into the Railroaders they not only care about their business, but like all of us they love baseball…thanks again for taking care of our boys and helping them pursue their dreams...

  3. Our son truly enjoyed his baseball experience in Fulton, Kentucky. He is already talking about wanting to return next summer. We appreciate all that the Fulton community and the Railroaders did to accommodate our son and to help keep his baseball dreams alive!
    Again, thank you for an awesome experience! The Rajkovich Family - #24 Dylan Rajkovich

  4. Ditto from me. I have never seen a community embrace these young men and take them in as family like this. You housed them, fed them, and took them in as family. We are forever grateful, espeically to our host family the Yates, they were awesome and we feel truely blessed!! Best wishes to all the Railroaders, the coaches, families and community. Good luck as they all enter their college programs! Pitcher Jake Bauer's family #11
