WINNIPEG, MB – The Winnipeg Goldeyes open a three-game series against the Cleburne Railroaders tonight at 7:05 p.m. at Shaw Park.

The series marks Cleburne’s first ever visit to Winnipeg.  Former Major League first baseman Rafael Palmeiro is on the trip with the Railroaders, and will start tonight at designated hitter.  The 53-year-old Palmeiro played 20 years in the Major Leagues, and is one of only six players in Major League history to amass both 500 home runs and 3,000 base hits.  Palmeiro signed with the Railroaders in the off-season, and joins his son Patrick on Cleburne’s roster.
