River City Rascals Play Final Regular-Season Home Game As O'Fallon, (MO) Seeks New Team


The River City Rascals are set to fold after 21 years in St. Charles County, (MO), but the city of O’Fallon isn’t giving up on baseball just yet.

The Rascals are members of the Frontier League, an independent minor league not affiliated with Major League Baseball. The team announced earlier this month it plans to cease operations at the end of the season. O’Fallon is looking for a team to move into the Rascals’ ballpark next season.

“We, at this point, are pretty confident that there will be a team in place for 2020,” said city spokesperson Thomas Drabelle. “You never know for sure. But the way things are proceeding right now, there’s been a ton of interest in the stadium. We’ve been contacted by basically every independent or prospect-type organization in the Midwest.”

1. That's too bad - It's nice little ball park.

I only made it to 1 game, O'Fallon MO is too long a drive from my house, but we were in St Charles for a festival and went to an evening game up the road in O'Fallon

Nice place. O'Fallon Brewery was also a point of interest for the wife and I

2. The Salina Stockade might be a good fit if they were willing to settle down

I watched them play my mighty San Rafael Pacifics last Sunday.

For the 2019 season, The Salina Stockade will serve as the Travel Team in the Pacific Association of Professional Baseball Clubs. The Stockade will not play any home games. The Pacific Association of Baseball Clubs is a five team professional baseball league in San Francisco Bay Area that was founded in 2012. Teams in the Pacific Association are the San Rafael Pacifics, Sonoma Stompers, Vallejo Admirals, Napa Silverados.

About the Salina Stockade

Founded in 2016 the Salina Stockade are the only team in baseball history to play in four leagues in four years. The name Stockade refers to the Stockade that was built around Salina, Kansas in the early 1900's that could not be penetrated by enemy forces. The Stockade are the only team in independent baseball history to play in three different leagues in three consecutive years. The Stockade have always been a travel team with limited or no home games. In 2016 and 2017 the Stockade called Salina, Kansas home and played home games at Dean Evans Stadium in Salina, Kansas. The Stockade are owned and operated by the Pecos League with Andrew Dunn serving as director. David Peterson has been on all coaching staff in some capacity. The teams colors are Navy Blue, Royal Blue, Powder Blue, Silver and White.
