The Arkansas Travelers can win a Texas League championship before the home fans when the team plays host to the Midland RockHounds at Ray Winder Field beginning Thursday, Sept. 15. Midland was the home team for the first two games of the best-of-five series, winning Game 1 7-1 (Tuesday’s result was after press time).
Game 3, on Thursday at Ray Winder, begins at 7:10 p.m. General admission is $6, with box seats costing $8 (no discount tickets are available during the playoffs). Games will be played on Friday and Saturday at the same time, if necessary.
The Travs last won the Texas League championship in 2001, when their series with Round Rock was ended after the Travs were up two games to none because of 9/11. Previous TL titles came in 1989, 1980, 1979 and 1977.
