Inside The RailCats
GARY | The RailCats have hung the buntings and massaged the field prepping for today's opener against Wichita.
You should read the release first and then the explanation later. Here's the release that came from the Frontier League on March 31, announcing a "groundbreaking" rule change. (Hint, read carefully)
WICHITA, Kan. | Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, home of the Wichita Wingnuts, is an interesting case in extremes.
GARY | The RailCats front office staff removed the tarp from the field at 4:30, but with maintenance to be done, this will likely either erase or severely delay batting practice.
GARY | The RailCats open against a Wichita team that hasn't allowed a postseason run since losing in the American Association Championship Series in three games to Winnipeg last season.
GARY | The RailCats have won six game fours in 10 chances, only once to clinch a series.
GARY | The RailCats are 1-3 in games three they've played against Fargo-Moorhead, winning the first (and only) in 2005.
GARY | The RailCats coaching staff has opted to rest many of its starters today, only as many as possible with a 23-man roster.
GARY | The RailCats have already made a change to their rotation now that they are playoff bound: today's starting pitcher.
GARY | The RailCats head into their final weekend of the regular season needing to win one game to reach the playoffs.
GARY | The RailCats made a move before the 12:10 p.m. game, releasing Taylor Sewitt and moving Danny Pulfer off of the disabled list.
GARY | The RailCats enter today's game with a magic number of 9 (total games in the season, plus 1, minus RailCats wins, minus opponents' losses) and two teams behind them in the wild card race.
GARY | It's almost 5 p.m., are your tickets in pocket ready for the RailCats game?
GARY | The RailCats will face Sioux City for the final game in the weekend series and last game in the home season series against the Canaries.
GARY | With Friday's loss, the RailCats hold at the top of the wild card standings shrunk.
GARY | Of the three-game trip the RailCats had scheduled in Wichita Tuesday through Thursday, the team played one day.
GARY | The RailCats end their home stand as the interns end their jobs.
GARY | The RailCats five wins in a row include victories against three different teams -- Sioux City, St. Paul and Kansas City -- who hold a collective record of 31 games below .500.
GARY | The RailCats have a chance for a second home sweep of St. Paul with a win Sunday afternoon.
GARY | After concluding Friday's win over St. Paul at 12:10 Saturday morning, RailCats had an early call to the field Saturday afternoon.
GARY | We'll start with an FYI that the game will begin later because of the dwarf wrestling event preceding the game.
A play from Tuesday's RailCats game against Sioux City was deemed worth enough to put rookie Zac Mitchell on SportsCenter.
GARY | To open the season, the RailCats failed in three early chances to sweep a series, including one at home against Wichita.
GARY | The RailCats have won 15 games by a single run and eight games in the last at-bat. Of those 15, four have come against Sioux City.
GARY | Today's game notes from the RailCats media relations department note that if the postseason began today, the team would own the wildcard and enter the playoffs for the first time since 2010.
