2011 Playoff Champion Fulton Railroaders

Farewell the 2011 Railroader Baseball (August 1, 2011)  Another good year of baseball comes to an end as the 2011 Railroaders depart for heights unknown.  There was plenty of action on the field to satisfy all those enjoying the sound of wooden bats and base running.  The Railroaders team and management thank all the families, friends and fans for their support.  Attendance for Home games averaged 202 per game, and Fans were treated to great baseball in a tight Ohio Valley League pennant race.  The Railroaders would like to hear your thoughts and comments on the season.  Click Here to express your remarks on the 2011 season.


Two Railroaders Best of Best in 2011 OVL.  (July 26, 2011)  With the 2011 regular season complete, the OVL has selected top players in 10 areas based on their season performances recorded in the stats.  Fulton is proud to have 2 Railroaders make the list.  Mikee Moore gets top honor in the league with 30 Stolen Bases adding to the team's record of 102 total.  Moore also lead the league with Most Hits at 52 along with Oiler Ryan Stephens.  In the pitching department, Skyler Cobb shares Best W/L Percentage at 100% with Oilers' Ben Wright, both 3-0 on the season. Congrats to these players and all the Railroaders for brining exciting baseball to Fulton.


Oilers are 2011 regular season champs.  (July 25, 2011)  The Owensboro Oilers beat the Marion Bobcats 8-6 in 13 innings to complete the suspended July 10 game.  With the win, the Oilers 24-18 record gives Owensboro the first ever OVL regular season crown.  Post Season Playoffs begin tomorrow, Tuesday, with the Railroaders traveling to Marion to face off with Bobcats in the first game of the best of 3 series in round one.


Strong finish in regular season play.  (July 24, 2011).  The Railroaders are now complete with their scheduled 42 regular season games, however, it is still possible they may need to play one more to decided the top seed in the standings.  

 

A slow start in June as the Railroaders went 8-11 on the month, beginning with two night opening losses at home against the Bobcats.  Fulton remained at the bottom of the standings all the way through mid-season before the turnaround began to take shape. Slowly but surely, the Railroaders climbed up in position completing their schedule in July with a 15-8 record ending above .500 both on the road and at home. Befittingly the Railroaders cap off the season winning at home with the Bobcats.


The Railroaders join in to Paint the Town.  (July 13, 2011)The Railroaders not only bring excitement to Fulton, the 2011 players are helping beautify the community by joining in Paint the Town project.  In their off time, the players will be painting the Pool House and their Bunk House to improve the area around the play.  As the season heads into its final weeks, the Railroaders are surging in the standings and also hope to bring Fulton another title in 2011.


Railroaders finish out Roster.  (July 14, 2011)With the deadline of July 15 to add players, the Railroaders have signed a utility player to finish out the regular season and playoffs.  He is Colton Speed from Union City.  He recently signed with Murray State to complete his last two years of college.  Colton prepped at Union City High School and played the last two years at a junior College in Florida. He will be an immediate asset to the Railroaders due to being able to play both infield and outfield.  We have several players who have nagging injuries and are playing thru them.  Colton will allow the coaches to use him to rest those injured and be prepared for the stretch run at the regular season title and post season playoffs. Colton Speed will be in uniform and ready if needed tonight.  Be sure and give him our best Railroaders welcome tonight at "The Yard"!!


Suspended game Oilers @ Bobcats from July 10th.  (July 13, 2011)The game played in Marion on Sunday, July 10 between the Owensboro Oilers and Marion Bobcats has been placed in a suspended status.  The ruling from OVL officials has the suspended game tied 6-6, to be picked up in the bottom of the 11th inning with the first batter.  The game is scheduled to resume on July 21 prior to a game already scheduled in Marion.  On that date the game will resume with the same lineup of players that were playing prior to the suspended game ruling, bottom of the 11th inning.  An adjustment in standings and stats have been removed, and will be reinserted upon completion of the game.


Roster adjustments made. (June 15, 2011).  The Railroaders signed two new players with two more expected in by the end of the week.  David Simmons arrived on Monday and got off to a great start Tuesday night going 2 for 4 with 2 stolen bases.  He is a freshman from Western Kentucky. University.  Simmons plays the outfield and is 6'0"at 170 lbs, he bats and throws right. Fulton also signed Miles Canaly who will arrive in Fulton this Thursday.  He is a sophomore from Motlow State Community College.  Canaly is a right handed pitcher and is 5'10" weighing 175 lbs.

These additions will replace Nick Duff, outfielder, who has left due to a wrist injury that will require surgery.  Brice Smallwood, pitcher, has left due to a hamstring injury.  Smallwood might return but it is uncertain at this point.  Dylan Lynn, pitcher,  also left due to a sore shoulder.  The loss of 3 and gain of 4 will bring the Railroader roster total to 23 with one open slot.
