Inclement Weather Suspends Woodchucks, Booyah at Athletic Park

WAUSAU, WI – Rain and lightning washed out the Wisconsin Woodchucks’ matchup against the Green Bay Booyah at Athletic Park.

A popup shower initially suspended play in the bottom of the second inning. The cell then began to produce lightning as the tarp was initially being pulled off, extending the delay indefinitely.

Wisconsin had a runner on third base with one out before the stoppage was ordered. While the game was called early in the contest, the Chucks wasted no time scoring runs in what action was able to be squeezed in.

Tyler MacGregor launched a two-run home run to left field in the second inning, plating Dalton Reeves as well. Three batters later, Kevin Kilpatrick sent a line drive to the left-center gap, scoring Noah Fitzgerald and Tyler Kehoe.

That made it 4-0 with one out in the frame when the umpires halted the game.

The Woodchucks and Booyah will pick the contest up where it left off ahead of the teams’ previously scheduled matchup June 22 at Athletic Park. First pitch will be 5:05 p.m.

Tickets for the June 8 game will turn into vouchers that can be redeemed for general admission bleacher seating for any regular season 2021 home game based on availability.
