FaceBook post from first time visitor to a Railroaders game played on June 17.* (June 20, 2022) 

 

Mr. Brent Callicott posted, "So, some of our family on Lisa side hosted the Fulton Railroaders tonight after the game. We sat in left field in our own little private area. Great atmosphere for sure. Railroaders lost to a great team who is in first place, the Hendersonville, Full Count Rhythm. Railroaders lost yes but lots more was won and accomplished in my book. But what I saw tonight was just true baseball at its best, families having a great time at a sporting event.

 

After the game, we fed the players and coaches. WOW, so very polite and very thankful for their food. They all said thank you and coaches as well. No one told them to do so either. This is tough baseball. They play almost everyday. They travel and back with little sleep. They wash their own clothes. 

 

At 10:15 after we cleaned up and packed up, one player was in a batting cage that had no lights and using his cell phone flash light to hit with. UNREAL. 

 

So, after the game was over and teams shook hands, they all kneeled and had prayer in a circle. How often do you see that nowdays ????? The Hendersonville team had players from LSU, Tennessee, Vandy and one listed from Auburn but he was at the college world series. 

 

These players from Fulton held a baseball camp for kids for 3 hours this morning. Lisa has a nephew, Brady Holloway who plays first base and also is a DH. These are kids just spending their summers living not in the best conditions of little rest and gone away from home. They are just trying to get better and hope to have a chance someday as they move up levels. 

 

So, for my first trip ever to a Railroaders game, I tip my hat to a great deal and organization. A well run program. There wasn't a seat to be had in their covered bleachers. Big crowd for sure and usually have really good crowds. Weather was fantastic !!!!! We walked away with a smile tonight and seeing true sportsmanship at its best, the love of baseball at a enjoyable level and a GREAT family event. Great Job Fulton Railroaders !!!"

The Ohio Valley League Adds the 11th Team Ahead of the 2022 Season (December 10, 2021)

The Ohio Valley League will have the 11th team in our 11th Season. We continue to grow into a larger and more competitive Summer collegiate baseball league. The newest member of the Ohio Valley League will be the Louisville Jockeys. The Jockeys will open the OVL’s 2022 Season on Wednesday, 1 June, hosting the Madisonville Miners. You can follow the Jockeys on social media by searching for “Louisville Jockeys”. 


The Jockeys will be part of the North division. The North division will include the Jockeys, Dubois County Bombers, Owensboro Riverdawgs, Henderson Flash, Muhlenberg Stallions, and Madisonville Miners. The South division will include the Franklin Duelers, Hopkinsville Hoppers, Hendersonville Full Count Rhythm, Paducah Chiefs, and Fulton Railroaders.

The 2022 OVL Season will start on Wednesday, 1 June, and our post-season Tournament will end on Sunday, 31 July. The League will play 40 games during the season followed by the Tournament. Teams will play other teams within their division more often than the teams in the opposite division. The Championship Tournament series will consist of “play in” games followed by three rounds of best of three-game series culminating on Sunday, 31 July.

See ya at the ballpark,
John M Bruce

Ohio Valley League Releases 2022 Season Schedule (November 16, 2021)

We are very pleased to announce our 11th Ohio Valley League Season schedule. After a wonderful and competitive 2021 Season, that saw our fans return in outstanding numbers, we are enthusiastically looking forward to the 2022 Season. Hometown Baseball had a great year last year with the Full Count Rhythm playing their inaugural Season in Hendersonville, TN thus expanding the OVL into a third state. The Ohio Valley League is excited to add an 11th team for the 2022 Season (more about the Louisville Jockeys just after Thanksgiving). We will realign our divisions after Thanksgiving as well. 

The 2022 Season will start on Wednesday, 1 June, and our post season Tournament will end on Sunday, 31 July. The League will play 40 games during the season followed by the Tournament. We will play teams in our division more often than the teams in the other division. The Championship Tournament series will consist of “play in” games followed by three rounds of best of three game series culminating on Sunday, 31 July.

We are going to play “offsite” on a couple of days this year. The Owensboro Riverdawgs will play host to the Paducah Chiefs in Marion, KY on Saturday, 18 June. The Marion Bobcats were one of the founding locations for the Ohio Valley League. For more on the OVL’s history check out the media guide on our web site (ohiovalleyleague.com/about/mediaguide). Additionally, the OVL will play a double header in Bowling Green, KY at the Hot Rods’ stadium on Saturday, 25 June. The Franklin Duelers will host the Owensboro Riverdawgs in a late afternoon game followed by the Hoptown Hoppers hosting the Full Count Rhythm. Should be an outstanding day of baseball for everyone.

Respectfully,
John M Bruce
President
