April 5 in Timber Rattlers history:

1996 – Rattlers season (and home) opener against West Michigan is postoned by inclement weather.
1997 – Rattlers lost 4-3 at West Michigan
2001 – The Rattlers season opening game at Beloit is rained out

2003 – The Rattlers are still trying to open the 2003 season, but their third straight game against Beloit is snowed out at home.

2007 – Timber Rattlers lose 9-5 at home to Peoria Chiefs in the season opening game.  Ryne Sandberg was the manager of the Chiefs and this game was his managerial debut.  The game started with a temperature of 33° and the wind was blowing in from left field at 22 mph.  Wisconsin was charged with seven errors in the game.   There were  1,814 who braved the elements to see this piece of history.

– Wisconsin sweeps a doubleheader at Quad Cities.  The Rattlers win both games by a score of 2-0.  In the first game, Phillippe Aumont tosses four no-hit innings with a walk and four strikeouts, but was not involved in the decision.  In the nightcap, Donnie Hume, Travis Mortimore, and Shawn Kelley combine on a one-hit shutout.  The only Quad Cities hit was a one out double by Domnit Bolivar off Hume in the fifth inning.

2012 – The Timber Rattlers start the 2012 season with a 7-2 home loss to the Cedar Rapids Kernels.
