GRAND CHUTE, WI - The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers are going to recognize our neighbors to the north on Saturday, April 28 when they host the Peoria Chiefs at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium at 1:05pm. Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, and Keweenaw Pub are joining with the Rattlers to present Yooper Day.
There is a special ticket deal available for $20. This package includes a box seat ticket and a newly-designed Timber Rattlers/Yooper T-shirt. If you are in need of a specific t-shirt size, this is the package for you! Fans may take advantage of this offer by ordering in person at the Timber Rattlers Box Office, over the phone at (920) 733-4152 or 1-800-WI-TIMBER, or through the team's website by using promo code "yooper" by April 10.
On April 28, the first 1,000 fans to enter the stadium for the game will receive the new t-shirt, but once the shirts are gone, they are gone! If you want to guarantee yourself a t-shirt, order in advance.
Businesses from the U.P. will be at the game and you will be able to see what they have to offer you. Additionally, there will be Upper Peninsula travel package prizes on this day to celebrate all things Yooper.
