"You've Got Mail"
Happy Holiday! College basketball has "officially" returned with the start of normal practices today. I say normal because teams have been able to practice throughout the school year on a limited time basis. The Valparaiso men's basketball team was on the court on Wednesday and Thursday, so …
The "unofficial" official beginning of the 2013-14 college basketball season is this Friday as the NCAA is now allowing men's basketball programs to begin practice three weeks earlier than normal.
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 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.
With the turn of the calendar into August earlier this week and the influx of "Back-to-School" sales happening everywhere, the 2013-14 athletic season is right around the corner.
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.
