BATTLE CREEK, MI – Tonight’s game between the Woodchucks and the Battle Creek Bombers was postponed before it began.
Heavy rain fell in the hours leading up to first pitch, rendering the field unplayable.
The game will be made up as a part of a doubleheader when the Bombers come to Wausau on August 5th.
The Woodchucks will travel to Kokomo to begin a two-game series with the Jackrabbits tomorrow at 5:35 p.m. central time.
The Wisconsin Woodchucks are a member of the finest developmental league for elite college baseball players, the Northwoods League. The 27-year old summer collegiate league is the largest organized baseball league in the world with 22 teams, drawing significantly more fans, in a friendly ballpark experience, than any league of its kind. A valuable training ground for coaches, umpires and front office staff, over 200 former Northwoods League players have advanced to Major League Baseball, including three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer (WAS), two-time World Series Champions Ben Zobrist (CHC) and Brandon Crawford (SFG) and MLB All-Stars Chris Sale (BOS), Jordan Zimmermann (DET) and Curtis Granderson (TOR). All league games are viewable live via the Northwoods League portal.
