May 12, 2006 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – The Rockford RiverHawks’ exhibition doubleheader scheduled for Saturday has been postponed because of wet grounds and a poor weather forecast.

The games against the Windy City ThunderBolts have been rescheduled for noon Monday at Hawkinson Ford Field in Crestwood. They will be scheduled for nine innings each, RiverHawks manager J.D. Arndt said, two innings longer than the standard regulation minor-league doubleheader game.

The RiverHawks begin the exhibition schedule at 3 p.m. Sunday at RiverHawks Stadium, when they host the Joliet Jackhammers of the Northern League. They conclude the spring schedule with a doubleheader against the ThunderBolts at 4 p.m. Thursday, May 18 at RiverHawks Stadium.

Tickets for exhibition games at RiverHawks Stadium will not be made available to the general public. Season-ticket holders and media have been invited to both dates. On both dates, food will be catered by Toni’s of Winnebago. The annual season-ticket holders’ party is scheduled for between games of the Thursday doubleheader, approximately 6 p.m.

The season starts at 11:35 a.m. Wednesday, May 24 at Windy City. Opening Day at RiverHawks Stadium is 7:05 p.m. Wednesday, May 31. The RiverHawks are members of the Frontier League, a 10-team independent professional baseball league that will play its 14th season in 2006.
