Arkansas Travelers open playoffs against the Naturals

September 6, 2011

The Arkansas Travelers open the 2011 Texas League playoffs against the Northwest Arkansas Naturals at Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock night, and the Travs’ road to get there has been an interesting one. It’s the first time the Travs have been to the TL playoffs since they won the championship in 2008.
