Though not an official color of the Cleburne Railroaders, there will be lots of Tarleton State University purple at The Depot at Cleburne Station this weekend.

Friday’s first of four games against the Gary South Shore Railcats will feature a postgame fireworks display in purple, then on Saturday, the university’s College of Graduate Studies hosts Tarleton State University Night.

COGS staff will be on hand at the stadium concourse to give away Tarleton swag and provide information about applying to graduate school.

Gates open an hour before game time, and the first pitch is scheduled for 7:06 p.m. Ticket prices start at $6 and are available at

The Depot at Cleburne Station, 1906 Brazzle Blvd., is located at the south end of Chisholm Trail Parkway and U.S. Highway 67.

The Railroaders are in the South Division of the 12-team American Association of Independent Professional Baseball.
