Behind the final door of the calendar we find...The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers!
A year ago at this time the Rattlers were also door #1 on the calendar, as they prepared for their inaugural season as a Brewer affiliate. A year later, they're coming off an attendance record-setting season (over 250,000 fans attended Timber Rattler games in 2009 for the first time ever).
Now they're preparing for a 2010 season where they could be one of the Brewers' most interesting affiliates, featuring the first full professional seasons of 2009 top picks Eric Arnett, Kentrail Davis and Kyle Heckathorn, among others.
They're also the easiest Brewer affiliate to follow online, with Chris Mehring's excellent Rattler Radio blog, games broadcast live on the internet via WNAM and an active Twitter presence to go along with their main page, which has features like The Offseason and The Interrogation Room.
2010 will be another great season for baseball in Appleton, and the Timber Rattlers want you to be a part of it. That's why they're giving away four pairs of tickets to four lucky commenters on this post. You have until Sunday at 4 pm to post a comment and enter yourself in the drawing.
Thanks again to the Timber Rattlers for making this possible!
(You also have until 4 pm tomorrow to sign up to win a ball autographed by members of the 2009 Huntsville Stars - don't forget;)
