“With our two teams being separated by just 38 miles, we wanted to have some fun with our series with the Hoots. The entire St. Louis area is a great baseball community, and it’s going to be fun having a team on the East side of St. Louis battling a team from the West Side of St. Louis.” Said River Dragons General Manager Dallas Martz. “It’s a short car rider between Alton and O’Fallon, and I see lots of both our team’s fans making the trip back and forth to be part of a fun series.” Martz went on to say.
