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 20 and Friday, June 21. This is the eleventh 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 Clinton LumberKings. 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 of 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 20 is Wisconsin's annual Salute to Cows Night presented by Agropur and this one is special. The Rattlers are changing their name to the Wisconsin Udder Tuggers for this game and the team will be wearing special hats and jerseys. Plus, the first 1,000 fans to enter the game will receive a Timber Rattlers beach towel. This night is a Craft Brews and Brats Thursday presented by Fox River Brewing Company and 105.7, WAPL with 12-ounce craft beers and Cher-Make brats available for $2.
The game on June 21 is Wizardry Night presented by Neuroscience Group. There will be characters from the movies, butter beer, and more fun from the books and movies. Plus, the first 1,000 fans to attend the game will receive a pair of Wizard Glasses. Neuroscience Group also is bringing Strike Out Stroke Night to the stadium with ways to recognize the signs of and prevent strokes. 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.
