Friday To-Do: Arkansas Travelers

Posted By on Wed, Sep 14, 2011 at 1:10 PM

The Travelers take on the San Antonio Missions Friday.
  • The Travelers take on the San Antonio Missions Friday.

7:10 p.m., Dickey-Stephens Park. $6-$12.

UPDATE: After losing last night in the 20th (!), the Travs are on the verge of elimination, so Friday may indeed be your last chance to see them.

Friday marks game three of the Texas League Championship Series. Depending on how the Travs fared in San Antonio — where they went 0-6 this season — Friday's game could be the finale.

Or the best-of-five series could continue in North Little Rock on Saturday evening (same time) and even to Sunday at noon 6 p.m. The series is an excuse for local fans to yell longer and enjoy Dickey-Stephens a little while longer in decent weather. But it's hard to get too worked up over the minor leagues, where players often move up as soon as they start to experience sustained success.

The Travs lost nine consecutive after outfielder Mike Trout, one of the best players in the Texas League, got called up to the Angels in August. Nonetheless, for a good number of Travs' players, winning the Texas League Championship will be as close as they come to Major League glory. So go Travs.
