GRAND CHUTE, WI - The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers will be wearing a piece of their parent club's history - with a local twist - during Sunday games at Time Warner Cable Field this season. In 2011, the Rattlers go back to the era when Hank Aaron and Robin Yount were teammates by wearing jerseys based on the home jerseys of the 1975 Milwaukee Brewers.
The white jerseys with blue and gold trim will have "RATTLERS" written across the chest in the original font of the 1975 Brewers. The team will wear these jerseys as part of Brewers Sundays during the 2011 season.
After the game on Sunday, August 28, fans will be allowed to bid on the Brewers Sunday jerseys in an auction.
There are five Sunday games that are available as part of the 10-game Weekend mini package. Fans may also purchase tickets for any game during the 2011 season on www.timberrattlers.com, over the phone at (800) WI-TIMBER, or in person at the Time Warner Cable Field box office.
