This is the fourth postponed game at Witter Field this season

Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. – Due to heavy rain, the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters and Wisconsin Woodchucks were forced to postpone their games on Monday, July 6. The two teams were slated to finish a game that was suspended in the top of the fifth inning on May 27, followed by a seven inning game. Both games will now be made up as part of triple-header on August 3 with the final three innings of the suspended game being completed, followed by a doubleheader consisting of two seven inning games.

First pitch for the May 27 suspended game will be at 4:05 p.m. The following games will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of the previous game.

All fans with July 6 tickets will be able to exchange their unused tickets to any remaining game during the 2015 regular season, excluding August 6, based on availability.

All Rafters 9-Game Pack, Solarus Founders Club, Point Craft River, and Home Plate Club tickets from the July 6 game can be exchanged out for any ticket for any remaining regular season game with the all-you-can-eat and drink amenities that are normally included in the ticket price, excluding August 6, based on availability.
