As part of a special promotion on June 9, the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Low A; Midwest League) will change their name to the Wisconsin Brats. The promotions is part of Bratoberfest presented by Grifols
The players and coaches will wear special-designed hats and jerseys on the evening of the game against the Cedar Rapids Kernels. Selected jerseys will be available in an online charity auction with proceeds going to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Charity Fund.
The Brats look was brought to life at Brandiose in San Diego. Partners Jason Klein and Casey White of Brandiose invented the first glow-in-the-dark, on-field cap for the Casper Ghosts (Rookie; Pioneer League) and first on-field, rally cap for the Altoona Curve (Class AA; Eastern League). They have also dreamed up top selling logos for the El Paso Chihuahuas (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League), Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (Class AAA; International League) and America’s oldest baseball club, the Cincinnati Reds.
Fans will be able to order t-shirts and hats with the Wisconsin Brats logo from the Snake Pit Team Store both online and at the store in Neuroscience Group Field soon. Keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and timberrattlers.com for further developments!
The first 1,000 fans to attend the game on that night will receive a special giveaway courtesy of Grifols. The Jerry Schneider Band is scheduled to perform their legendary polka music outside the ballpark before the game and there will be several other surprises from the Brats on that night.
