Two Railroaders take top OVL honors.  (July 24, 2014)  (Form the OVL) The Ohio Valley League announces the 2014 Season Players' Awards today.  The final games of the 2014 regular season completed last night with the game in Fulton. Each year the OVL recognizes the top players in ten areas of performance.  This year the OVL continues the tradition, and this year the league has decided to select only one player in each area therefore eliminating ties as in years past.  Based upon a 40 game schedule the players had to quality with a minimum of playing time in order to quality for a title.  Batters must have had 112+ plate appearances (PA) and pitcher a minimum for 32 innings pitched (IP).  Stolen Bases and Saves are exempt from these qualifying factors. Where two or more qualified players tied in a specific category, OVL officials have chosen one player over the others based upon comparing all individual performance stats for each player.  Trophies will be awarded to the players selected for a title.  Competition was tough this year as several players set high standards of performance.  Congratulations to those players chosen and all who were the best in 2014.  Every player and team helped bring another great season of baseball.

Coaches talk.  Rick Robinson (left) the new University of Tennessee at Martin baseball coach discusses  recruiting with Brad Bohannon (right) who is the assistant baseball coach and head recruiter for the University of Kentucky.  Both men met and enjoyed the Railroaders verses Hoppers game on Wednesday night in Fulton at the Lohaus Field.

 

From OVL President.  From the league perspective we have a great group of umpires. With rare exception they are most knowledgeable and can manage a field and game. We are proud of our umpire staff here in West KY, West Tenn, & Southern Indiana. Our league thinks they are the best.  The OVL has been blessed with competent umpiring which has given us a false sense of security. Huntingburg was an anomaly for sure and hopefully never again. Its now playoff time when we put our best foot forward and provide the best baseball around. Come on out and enjoy!

Gordon Guess President OVL
