The Asheville Tourists are in the playoffs

(via Asheville Citizen-Times)

Congratulations to the Colorado Rockies’ single-A affiliate Asheville Tourists, who earned themselves a playoff berth in the South Atlantic League this season by exactly half a game over their rival Greenville Drive on the very last day of the season!

The Tourists have some unfinished business, too; they won the entire South Atlantic League in 2014, so now that they are in the final four, they need to go out and defend their title.

They’ll play a best-of-three game series against the Savannah Sand Gnats beginning tonight, and continuing Friday, and Saturday (if necessary).

Also, we’ll have a lot more on this and everything else Tourist-related over the next week or two as we begin to break down each team’s minor league season and provide end-of-year analysis, player awards, and much, much more for those of you hungry to know more about the Colorado Rockies’ farm system.
