What happens in the event of a rainout?

In the event of inclement weather, the best place to find out if the game has been cancelled or postponed is on our website at www.raftersbaseball.com. If we need to cancel a game, we'll immediately put a story on the website describing any details of when the game will be rescheduled and how to redeem your tickets. We will also update the office voicemail message to explain the weather and its effects on the game.

Rafters Rainout Policy:

If a game is rained out prior to the conclusion of the 5th inning, all tickets for reserved seats can be redeemed at the ticket office for any other game remaining in the 2017 regular season. If a game is rained out prior to the gates opening, all tickets can be redeemed at the ticket office for any game remaining in the 2017 regular season, based on availability. If the rainout occurs three (3) hours after the gates have opened, regardless of how much of the game has been played, all Pregame Picnic and Deck Area tickets will be considered used in full and can only be redeemed for a reserved seat for another game during the 2017 regular season, based on availability. If the game is shortened due to rain but has been played beyond the required five (5) innings to make it a complete game, all tickets will be considered used and will have no value at the ticket office. If the game is shortened due to rain, the Rafters staff will attempt to contact all Pregame Picnic and Deck Area parties prior to them leaving the park that night.

How do I order tickets?

The most convenient way to order tickets is from your very own computer. Visit www.raftersbaseball.com, click on the tickets tab and the "Buy Tickets" link and you can order and print your tickets right at home. You can also order your tickets online and have them left at the Will Call window so they are waiting for you when you arrive on the night of the game. Tickets can also be purchased over the phone or in person during Rafters Ticket Office hours. The Rafters Office phone number is (715) 424-5400. It is recommended that you purchase your tickets ahead of time to avoid any lines at the ticket window and guarantee you get a great seat to the game.
