GRAND CHUTE, WI - The fans of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers have spoken! Infielder Gabriel García has been selected as the Fans' Choice bobblehead for the 2018 season. Garcia's bobblehead, presented by Pick 'N Save, will be handed out to the first 1,000 fans to attend the game on August 30 against the Beloit Snappers. Game time is 7:05pm.
Fans who purchased the 2018 Bobblehead package before the start of the season are guaranteed to receive the Garcia bobblehead as part of that package.
The Timber Rattlers will be known as Los Cascabeles on August 30, which is the Rattlers second annual Hispanic Heritage Night.
García, who was selected from a group of past and current Latino Timber Rattlers in a fan vote held on the team's website earlier this season, was informed of the honor in a team meeting before Wednesday's game in West Michigan.
