Snow Day

I waited most of the day today for these shots.

See, not that bad.

Nope. Not that bad at all.

But on closer examination.

I'm really starting to hate this winter.

45 Days to Opening Day.

48 Days to Opening Day

I am working from home today (w/ 48 days to Opening Day), so these pictures are from yesterday (seven weeks to Opening Day) and I have some good news.   The temperature was above 20 yesterday!!!  Yep. Warmed up enough to snow.  Not as bad as the East Coast, but it was enough to add cover to the field.

Fortunately, I was busy during the heaviest snowfall on Thursday… Fortunate…Unfortunate…At this point, I don’t even know anymore.

There was an event up on the club level.  So, I couldn’t get upstairs for the shot from there…But…at this point….you can probably just click on a photo from last week  and you’ll get the idea.

I heard a rumor that the temperature may actually get to to 33 on Monday!!!!  Maybe even 38 on TUESDAY!!!!!  Keep thinking those warm thoughts, Rattlers fans!

55 Days to Opening Day

The opening of this week’s update is being taken over by Bad News Barrett.

“Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium received NO SNOW since the field conditions update one week ago.  BUT, I’m afraid I have some BAD NEWS!  The temperatures have not risen above 20° in the last week and it was below zero again this morning.  That means you have EXACTLY THE SAME AMOUNT of snow as last week and you are seven days closer to the start of your baseball season.”



Let’s just get to the photos:

Rattlers Alumni Report – Through Winter League Games of 2/2/14

The Caribbean Leagues have finished their playoffs and the 2014 Caribbean Series has started in Venezuela.

Meanwhile in Australia, Craig Anderson’s Sydney Blue Sox lost to Canberra in the Preliminary Finals of the ABL.

There were no ex-Timber Rattlers involved in the Venezuelan League Championship Series as Magallanes beat Caribes 4 games to 1.

The Championship Series in the Dominican Republic wrapped with Licey (w/ Rene Rivera) beating Escogido (w/ Jason Rogers) 5 games to 3.

The only two active ex-Rattlers in Caribbean Series are with Puerto Rico.  Those players are Jeff Dominguez and Martin Maldonado.

Caribbean Series....That sounds nice.

Friday Field Photos – January 17, 2014

As of this post on January 17, there are 76 days until the Opening Night game against the Peoria Chiefs on April 3, 2014.

Here are a few photos of the field from three perspectives.  In the future, I will include a picture from the camera platform beyond the wall in center.  Today….the snow was a little too deep.

All I can say about this series of pictures….At least the sun is out today.
