[March 13, 2008]  Jim Ash, general manager at Lincoln Country, 96.3, has announced that Lincoln Railer baseball games will be on the FM radio station later this month. Initially three home games are scheduled, with the possibility of more being added later.

The games scheduled are March 21 against Plainfield South and March 27 against Bloomington High. The April broadcast is yet to be determined.

Ken Schweitzer, longtime color man for Railer football, will do the play-by-play.

Ash was pleased his station is going to be able to air the games. "Railer baseball doesn't get the coverage other Railer sports team receive, and I think this is great that Logan County and all of central Illinois can now follow the Railer baseball team at least a little during this season," he said.

The station currently has a broadcast radius that encompasses over 730,000 residents in the heart of Illinois.

Ash wanted to point out that this opportunity presented itself to the station through the efforts of the Lincoln Railer Baseball Boosters, who were instrumental in obtaining the necessary sponsors.

"Our station has had a long commitment to Railer football and basketball, and I think it's great we have the opportunity to give these young baseball players the notoriety their hard efforts deserve," he said.

The programs are going to be aired on 96.3 at 4:30 p.m. Information on the April game and any other possible broadcasts will be announced as soon as possible.
