The Kansas City T-Bones and manager Tim Doherty have announced a trade that sends veteran infielder Rico Washington to the Gary SouthShore RailCats in exchange for four players to be named and a future consideration.
“Gary presented us with two opportunities that we couldn’t pass up,” Doherty said. “On one hand, this gives Rico a chance to pursue his goal of winning a championship in 2011. At the same time, we have the chance to obtain five pieces that can potentially help us make a run at an American Association title in 2012.”
“It is very rare to be presented with the opportunity to receive that many pieces in exchange for just one player,” Doherty added. “We feel this will strengthen our club for next season.”
The T-Bones return home on Tuesday, August 23 to welcome the Sioux Falls Pheasants for a four-game series in the final homestand of the regular season. A number of great promotions are planned to cap off the 2011 campaign, so call 913-328-5618 or visit www.tbonesbaseball.com for more information and to secure your seats today!
