McDonald Pitches Shutout for the T-Bones
T-Bones Press Release - Aug 27, 2003


T-Bones still in playoff hunt with win
Kansas City Star - Aug 27, 2003
"The T-Bones refuse to go away.

Just when it looks as if they will lose all hopes for the playoffs, they come alive. That was the case Tuesday night, as the T-Bones routed the Sioux City Explorers 10-0 in Iowa.

With the win, coupled with a loss by Fargo-Moorhead, the T-Bones are four games back with five to play."


T-Bones blank Explorers
Sioux City Journal - Aug 27, 2003
"Ray Brown drove in four runs and league RBI leader Eddie Pearson plated three more for the T-Bones, the last team still mathematically alive in the West Division's second-half race.

The first-year Kansas City club, relocating from Duluth, Minn., has a 21-19 second-half mark while division-leading Fargo-Moorhead was 25-15 after a 9-3 loss to Lincoln.

That pulled the T-Bones within four games of first, but they have only five left to play, virtually playing themselves out of it with three losses in a four-game series ending Monday in Fargo."

Surf adding players for playoff surge
Press of Atlantic City - Aug 24, 2003
"The spotlight often seems to focus on the Atlantic League when people discuss independent baseball graduates who now play for major-league franchises. But another independent circuit, the Frontier League, actually has the most former players currently in the 30 major league organizations, regardless of classification.

Of the 179 one-time independent players now in affiliated baseball, 60 of them played in the Frontier League, a 12-team league that focuses on young players (under-27) with less than four years of professional experience.

The Northern League is second with 43 and the Atlantic League has 42. Both have seven major leaguers."


T-Bones Deny Fargo Series Sweep

T-Bones' playoff hopes dim
Kansas City Star - Aug 25, 2003
"A disappointing weekend series in Fargo, N.D. has left the T-Bones on the brink of elimination from the playoff chase. Two defeats and Sunday's victory have left the T-Bones four games behind Fargo-Moorhead with only seven games remaining. Tonight's game concludes the season series between the clubs. Realistically, the T-Bones must win tonight to maintain any real hope of making the playoffs."
