The relationship between the Milwaukee Brewers and Wisconsin Timber Rattlers is a strong one. So, it’s no surprise that the Milwaukee Brewers and the Appleton T-Rats have renewed their affiliation through the 2022 season:
Appleton is Milwaukee’s low A affiliate, and is close enough (and convenient enough) to go for the minor league experience. The community supports the team well, and you can get a chance to see some of the Brewers’ young prospects as they make their way through the MiLB system.
The Brewers have also used Appleton as a convenient location for rehab play for players coming off the DL, which also helps draw in fans. Those don’t always go as planned, of course.
