HEY, ERNIE! What do you say?
Saturday’s Home Opener against the Beloit Snappers has been postponed. But it was not postponed due to lack of effort by the Timber Rattlers front office.
Pretty much everyone – except me – was at the stadium until 10:00pm on Friday night doing battle with the elements. I received pictures via text to show me their attempts to clear the snow up here as I was watching the Timber Rattlers and Snappers play in some ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS conditions in Beloit. At least I was inside…They were out there.
The team bus pulled into the parking lot at the stadium at 2:00am this morning and I am pretty sure that I saw the grounds crew just leaving at that time.
Additionally, while they were shoveling away here, they had the Timber Rattlers game on the PA system to listen to me call the game. So they had it bad that way, too.
Don’t tell them I said it, but I work with the best front office in baseball.
