í08 Fireballer Justin Long Signs with the Phillies   (July 1, 2009)  Justin Long, 6-2/220# right hander for the 2008 Tradewater Pirates was drafted in the 2009 MLB first year player draft.  The Philadelphia Phillies took him in the 24th round and 727th overall. 

Long, a Sun City, KS native and player at Bellevue University, put up impressive stats last season while helping the Pirates to their first KIT League championship.  During his stay, he faced 282 batters, gave up 53 hits only one of which was a home run, and finished with a 1.4 ERA.  The radar gun put his fast ball consistently in the 92-95 range and his curve ball was one of the nastiest seen around this area in a long time.  Long received several looks by the MLB scouts while with the Pirates but returned to Bellevue where he had another great season on the mound.  

After signing with the Phillies, he was immediately sent to the Williamsport Crosscutters, a Class A affiliate of the Phillies where he was tested within days of his arrival.  As of this printing, Justin has pitched 6-1/3 innings in five games, has three saves to his credit, has 10 strikeouts, and has allowed 6 hits, and currently carries a 0.0 ERA.  It was a genuine pleasure to have Justin spend time at Riverside Park and we extend our most sincere wishes for a great career in Justinís future.

Current Railroader Tim Dunn picked by Reds. (June 12, 2009)  The 2009 Railroaders congratulate their current team member Tim Dunn for his selection in the MLB draft.  The Cincinnati Reds picked the right-hander Dunn, the TranSouth Player of the Year, in the 46th round. Dunn was 12-0 with a 1.81 earned run average and earned NAIA All-America honors as a Trevecca Nazarene junior this spring.  Timís current record with the 2009 Railroaders is 2-1 with a win against the Sikeston Bulls on the day of his MLB selection. Fulton and the Railroader Fans express their utmost best for Tim and his accomplishments. 


Detroit Tigers draft Wade Gaynor in 3rd round. (June 10, 2009)  Former Pirate slugger and outfielder Wade Gaynor was selected 89th overall in Tuesday's Major League Baseball draft.  Gaynor, a Hancock County native and outfielder for the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, played for the Pirates during the 2006 season where he put up some very impressive stats, both offensively and defensively.  From the Pirates' perspective, this opportunity could not have been provided to a better individual.  Wade is a first class individual who exhibits the very best in the traits of character, integrity, and professionalism, all traits that we look for in Pirate players.  Best wishes and good luck to Wade from the entire Pirate organization. 

Former Oiler Tyler Blandford drafted. (June 10, 2009)  Tyler Blandford former Daviess County, Ky. High, Owensboro Oiler pitcher of 2007, and current junior at Oklahoma State, has been drafted as the 143rd overall pick in the MLB draft. The Owensboro Oilers would like to congratulate Tyler and his family on this very special achievement. We look forward to following Tyler's career and wish him much success in the future both on and off the baseball field.  Well done young man!




Astros draft J. B. McDonald  (July 9, 2009)  J.B. McDonald, a starter on the 2007 KIT League Championship team, who finished with an 8-2 mark and a 2.62 E.R.A in the KIT League; as well as striking out three batters in a row in the All-Star game with the CICL, has been drafted in the 18th round by the Houston Astros.  McDonald, an outstanding pitcher for Boston College is currently playing with the Tri-City ValleyCats of the New York-Penn League.
