The Wingnuts will begin the American Association playoffs on the road on Wednesday. They’re still waiting on an opponent.
Wichita (60-38) clinched the American Association South Division nearly two weeks ago, and will finish with the either the best or second-best record in the league. Their opponent will be either Fargo-Moorhead, Gary or Kansas City.
In the American Association’s best-of-five playoff format, the team with home-field advantage plays the first two games of the series on the road Wednesday and Thursday, then comes home for the final three games.
The Wingnuts will be home at 7:05 p.m. Saturday, and if necessary at 5:05 p.m. next Sunday and 7:05 p.m. Sept. 11.
