GRAND CHUTE, WI - You may have seen some of the special jerseys the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers will be wearing during the 2018 Midwest League season. The Milwaukee Brewers minor league affiliate has already unveiled their Brewers Sunday and their Wisconsin Brats jerseys. Now, the Rattlers are ready to show off all of their 2018 special jerseys.
The Rattlers have already worn their Brewers Sunday jerseys this season and they will wear them every Sunday home game during the remainder of the 2018 season. These jerseys will be available in an auction after the final Sunday home game of the season on August 19.
A new jersey this season is the one inspired by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These radical uniforms will be worn by the Rattlers during the game on Saturday, May 12.
The Salute to Cows jerseys are in honor of the Dairy State and the Rattlers will be donning these cow-patterned jerseys on Thursday, June 7.
The Timber Rattlers are changing their name to the Wisconsin Brats for the game on Saturday, June 9 and they needed new jerseys for the occasion. You may have already seen these jerseys when this promotion was announced earlier this year. T-shirts for the Brats are already available in the Snake Pit Team Store.
Star Wars™ Night returns on Saturday, June 30 and the Rattlers are wearing jerseys that should allow them to make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs. This year's jerseys are based on the iconic outfit of Han Solo, everyone's favorite Corellian smuggler.
The patriotically-themed Military Appreciation jerseys will be worn by the Rattlers for the game on Sunday, July 8. There will be a bobblehead featuring Milwaukee Brewer Ryan Braun, who wore Wisconsin's Military Appreciation Jersey in 2017 on a rehabilitation assignment. The bobblehead and Military Appreciation Night are sponsored by American National Bank.
One other jersey making its return this season is the one that is inspired by the University of Wisconsin that the Rattlers will wear on Tuesday, August 21. This jersey is to coincide with a Sam Dekker appearance and a Sam Dekker bobblehead giveaway on Strike Out Cancer Night.
Fans will have an opportunity to take home one of these specialty jerseys even if they are not at the game. Jerseys will be put up for auction on timberrattlersauctions.com again this season. Details on the start and end times for all auctions will be announced as the dates get closer.
Proceeds from the jersey auctions will go to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Charity Fund to be distributed to other charities where specified:
