GRAND CHUTE, WI - The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers are joining MiLB.TV. Fans of the Milwaukee Brewers affiliate will be able to watch all the action at Time Warner Cable Field even when they can't make it to the game.
All Timber Rattlers home games for the rest of the 2011 season are now available for viewing over the internet. By purchasing the
MiLB.TV package from MiLB.com for $19.99, fans can follow the current crop of Brewers prospects in Appleton for the remainder of the season. The package - which is usually $29.99 for the whole season - also includes access to every other team in minor league baseball who is part of MiLB.TV. One of those teams is the Nashville Sounds, the Triple-A affiliate of the Brewers.
"This is something that we have been working on for a long time," said Timber Rattlers president and general manager Rob Zerjav. "Now that everything is lined up, we are very happy to unveil this option to our fans."
Another feature of MiLB.TV will let fans go back and catch a game that they missed thanks to the video archive.
The internet broadcast will feature the camera work of the Timber Rattlers production crew and the radio call from AM1280, WNAM.
