GRAND CHUTE, WI - The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers will hold two Peanut Free Nights at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium when they open the second half of their home schedule on Thursday, June 22 and Friday, June 23. This is the ninth season in a row in which the Midwest League affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers have held at least one Peanut Free Night to allow fans with peanut allergies the opportunity to attend games.
Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium will have no peanuts, peanut butter, or peanut based products to allow fans with peanut allergies a chance to enjoy the Timber Rattlers games against the Kane County Cougars. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm on both nights.
The stadium will be cleaned and rinsed before the events to remove as much peanut residue from the seats, the concourse, and other areas in the ballpark as possible. Even though peanuts and products made with nuts or peanut oil will not be sold, the Timber Rattlers cannot guarantee that all peanut residues will be out of the ballpark. However, every effort will be made for a peanut-free environment.
In addition to the Peanut Free Nights, there are big promotions scheduled for both games.
The game on June 22 is Dinosaur Night. Buddy from the PBS Kids' show Dinosaur Train will be at the game to meet with his fans. Rocco the T-Rex is going to be at the game, too. Additionally, Wisconsin-Oshkosh paleontologist Dr. Joseph Peterson will have fossils and photos from his dig sites for you to see. There are also plans for some other prehistoric surprises for fans both young and young-at-heart. Additionally, this game is a Craft Brews and Brats Thursday presented by Wisconsin Brewing Company, Badger Club Amber, Fox River Brewing Company, and Y100 with 12-ounce craft beers and Cher-Make brats available for $2.
Minion Night presented by EdVest Wisconsin College Savings Plan and North Shore Bank is set for June 23. There will be a few happy henchmen to welcome everyone to the ballpark and a Minion-themed giveaway for the first 1,000 fans. After the game there will be a fireworks display courtesy of FOX 11 and after the fireworks children 14 and under may participate in Kids Run the Bases presented by Menasha Corporation. This night is also an Arty's Old Fashioned Friday presented by WIXX with Arty's Old Fashion drinks available for $3.
