As the only team to appear in the championship series for three straight seasons, the River City Rascals continue to stand among the top clubs of the independent Frontier League. At their home stadium, T.R. Hughes Ballpark—the same field where former MLB players such as Josh Kinney and Justin Christian cut their baseball teeth by gnawing on aluminum bats before heading to the majors—the River City Rascals face challenges from league rivals amid crowd-pleasing antics such as dizzy-bat races. On the field, catcher Charlie Lisk leads the offensive charge, having amassed 31 RBIs over his first 33 games, and reliever Dustin Umberger remains a stalwart asset in the bullpen, with a minuscule 0.96 ERA in 28 innings. Throughout the season, several games feature special promotions such as a Salute to the Troops on August 29 and regular giveaways of posters and lifelike busts of managers' giant bobbing heads.
