The Cleburne Railroaders expect a packed house tonight for Cleburne Community Night.
The Railroaders face the Lincoln Saltdogs at 7:06 p.m. at The Depot.
“The weather’s not the only thing that is hot,” Cleburne Mayor Scott Cain said. “Lots of shade and breeze for the fans and exciting baseball as the Railroaders march towards the first playoff series in over 100 years. Oh yeah, the food and entertainment is great.”
Cleburne’s own Dillon Gee, former Major League Baseball player, will throw out the first pitch and sign autographs for fans. Gee played for the New York Mets, Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins before retiring earlier this year.
“We want to invite you our for Cleburne Community Night,” Gee said. “Come support the Railroaders and the Cleburne community. I’ll be set up on the concourse signing autographs.”
Fans are asked to bring Legos to donate to Legos for Little Warriors, a program created by Brody Nelson, and school supplies for Wheat Middle School Pencil Pal Paige Cook.
It is also Shirt off the Back night, sponsored by the Cleburne Times-Review. After the game, jerseys worn by players will be auctioned off. Proceeds will go towards the Children’s Advocacy Center of Johnson County.
