Wisconsin's minor league baseball teams losing to weather

APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Minor league baseball teams in Wisconsin are battling the weather – and losing.

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers have had to cancel 5 of their first 9 home games.

It’s a similar story for the Beloit Snappers, who have played just 4 of their first 7 scheduled home games. Beloit team officials say a rain gauge shows 15 to 16 inches of rain in about a week’s time.

The cancellations are hitting those teams on the bottom line. They say they haven’t had much revenue coming in to pay the bills.

The postponements mean a lot of doubleheaders to come, which will put a big strain on some pitching staffs.

On the other hand, those players haven’t been able to get too much action so far.
