Anyone been to a Wisconsin Timber Rattlers game?

I coached a little league team by that name. Does that count?

Udder Tuggers  :hysterical:

Not sure if schedule will permit, but I'll be at that airport a couple of times in the next few days and I see that the Udder Tuggers' stadium is like a squirt away and they are just starting a home stand. 

I see that Friday is "Margaritaville Night" featuring a post-game concert by the "Boat Drunks".  This sounds like minor league nirvana

For sure.  Everything will be no doubt be covered in cheese.

I'd say milk this trip for all it's worth.

We went on Saturday ("Frozen"-themed "Princess Night", more sparkles and rainbows than in a unicorn's fart).  It was a blast.  High A minor league baseball is a good time, cheap, and (unlike half the Nats games I've attended this year), actually 9 innings of baseball. 

There was a video scoreboard in left field, but in the concourse it was right out of Office Space:



Pretty close to the field for less than the cost of a beer at Nats Park:


I managed to score an "Udder Tuggers" shirt on the way out.  In Cheese We Trust.  Interesting that they used the DH despite being a NL (Brewers) affiliate playing at home...ultimately the Quad City River Bandits (KC Royals affiliate) beat the home team, 11-9, despite a decent rally back from a deep hole in the 9th.   

Apparently A-Roid played for the Foxes (as they used to be called) back in the day.

You need to check this out from the plane on your next trip...

I am sorry I missed this. I have been to three of the parks in that league! What were you doing up there? God’s country.

Fun games at opcy. Nearly full except for the two sections they aren’t using. Concessions are a nightmare, huge lines and no mobile ordering.

Why aren't they using two sections?

They claim labor shortages. Second biggest crowd of the year tonight as it was the park’s 30th anniversary celebration with lots of returning players including Mussina and Murray. Cal delivered a message via video.
