Final Comments for 2017 Season

The Railroaders final game has closed the 2017 season for Fulton. The ups and downs of the season are now a part of our history and of course our memories.

Our opening game in Fulton is one we’ll never forget; coming back in the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 outs down by 5 runs and scoring 6 that included a game winning walk off grand slam. It was certainly one for the books.

Sweeping a doubleheader against the top of the league Bombers at the Yard, and beating them in their own League Stadium to begin the post season playoffs.

Although we had a questionable start for the first half of season and loss a few key players to injury, the team didn’t quit and their desire to battle to the end was contagious. They didn’t let their mistakes stop them and came back in several games to win or make it close.

As one broadcaster from another team put it, “The Railroaders are the most dangerous team to play” and I agree. No lead was safe enough to count them out. Sure, the Railroaders were beaten soundly in a couple of games, but they did not give up. That says a lot about each and ever player on the Railroaders.

I wish the best of luck to every one of the 2017 players and the hope future endeavors are successful. We the Fans, Families, and Management salute you!

  1. From the Arevalo family,
    We want to thank everyone in the Railroaders organization for allowing our son to be a part of such an outstanding organization. We enjoyed listening and watching the team play all season. The real time interactions with the guys in the booth was a special touch specially when Pablo was given the opportunity join those guys on air, IT WAS AWSOME to hear him live. To the coaches thank you, he's told me that every one of you have helped him better his game and is very appreciative. Good Luck to all and GO ROADERS!

  2. Sherrie from Oregon. I was fortunate enough to listen to a few games and thoroughly enjoyed them. Don't let the team standings take away from what a great team the Railroaders are. It was awesome to watch how you young men from all over the country became more and more cohesive as a team as the season progressed. You all played with heart and for the love of the game. As a fan I'm proud of all of you. I hope you all had a great time at Fulton and made some lifelong friends. Best wishes for all of you and safe travels home. #FULTON #RAILROADERS "ROLL TRAIN
