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 Travsâ€™ road to get there has been an interesting one.

The Travelers went 36-31 to win the TL North Division first half by one game over the Naturals to qualify for the playoffs and went 32-38 in the second half. The Naturals won the second half North with a 38-32 record.
