GRAND CHUTE, WI - Individual game tickets for the 2015 Wisconsin Timber Rattlers season will be available for purchase on Saturday, March 7. The Midwest League affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers will also host a family-oriented event at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm to celebrate the fast-approaching season and the birthday of Whiffer, one of the team's mascots on that day.
Fans may purchase individual game tickets for 2015 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.
If you have already purchased a season ticket package for this season, you may pick them up in person in the Fox Communities Credit Union Fox Club.
Season ticket holders who pick up their tickets or fans who purchase individual tickets for an April game, including Opening Day, at the Box Office will receive a coupon good for 40% off purchases in the team store. The coupon is valid through March 31 and may be used on anything in the store except Kids' Crew memberships and game-worn jerseys.
The Snake Pit Team Store will also be open from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on March 7.
Whiffer is celebrating his second birthday during the event and several mascots from area teams and businesses will be here for the party. There will be a birthday cake from Dairy Queen and treats from Tamara's Cakes, a coloring contest, and movies for the kids in the Fox Club. Additionally - weather permitting, a sledding hill and the speed pitch machine will be set up at the ballpark.
The first 500 fans to attend the event will receive a free hot dog, a free soda, and a free bag of popcorn by visiting the Fox Club.
For every $20 spent on tickets on March 7, the purchaser will receive an entry - with a limit of four per person - into a drawing. The big prize will be two tickets to Opening Day for the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park on Monday, April 6 against the Colorado Rockies. There will be other prizes for fans to win as part of the drawing, too.
