July 20, 2006 - RiverHawks' fans can now get to know the players in a whole new way. The Rockford web page will now provide insight into the players' lives.
The RiverHawks will answer questions pertaining to playing the game as well as off-the-field information. The first RiverHawks profiled is catcher Gooby Gerlits. New RiverHawks will be added throughout the remainder of the second half of the season.
Fans can access this information by going to www.rockfordriverhawks.com. Rolling the mouse over the "Team" tab on the left side will bring up a menu. The last option on that menu is "Get to Know Your RiverHawks." Clicking here will also take you to that page. That will access the new feature, as well as show a couple of player diaries, from Frontier League All Star starters Garrett Bauer and Rico Santana.
The RiverHawks are members of the Frontier League, a 10-team independent professional baseball league in its 14th season. Advertising, ticket and suite information is available by calling the box office at (815) 885-2255. All games are broadcast live on WRHL-FM, 102.3 – the Hub and online at www.rockfordriverhawks.com.
