Lineup and Game Notes – April 6, 2013

The 2-0 Timber Rattlers play the 0-2 Peoria Chiefs today at 1:00 pm CDT.  I shouldn’t mention this for fear of those back in the Fox Cities wanting to wish harm to me….BUT…a high of 68° is forecast for Peoria today.  Chance for rain later in the afternoon, too….if that makes you feel better.

Here’s a post to get you ready for Game #3 of the 2013 season.

You may tune in for the broadcast a few different ways:

In the listening area, dial around to AM1280, WNAM.  This is one of the internet links to listen to the game.   WNAM is also available on IHeartRadio as a website and as an app for your smart phone.

Another beautiful day in Peoria.

Another beautiful day in Peoria.
