The home of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Low Class A; Midwest League) will have a new name — Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium — as a local physician practice signs up for naming rights.
The naming rights became available when Time Warner exercised an option to pull out of its deal this offseason.
The Neuroscience Group is a multi-specialty physician practice focused on the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of all aspects of the nervous system. They provide complete brain, spine, and pain care services under one roof. The Neuroscience Group was established in 1991 by neurosurgeon Thomas A. Lyons MD, FACS.
“The Neuroscience Group’s number one goal is improving our patients’ lives,” said Philip Yazbak, MD, FACS, president of Neuroscience Group. “We also believe that the presence of the Timber Rattlers in Appleton is a major contributor to the quality of peoples’ lives in the Fox Cities and beyond. As longtime season ticket holders, we have enjoyed many personal and corporate outings at Fox Cities Stadium, and hope to continue to do so for many years to come.”
“The Neuroscience Group has been a great partner of ours for some time and we are truly excited about our growing relationship,” said Timber Rattlers president Rob Zerjav. “We think this is a great fit with a great local group and we feel there will be a lot of unique opportunities for our community that we will be able to develop out of this partnership.”
Fox Cities Stadium opened in 1995 as a replacement for Goodland Field. The ballpark underwent a major renovation after the 2012 season to add an upper level with a year round banquet facility, six suites, and club seating. The team also expanded concession stands, restrooms, the team store, and the main offices as part of the renovation.
