Jerseys of the Rattlers – 2006 Throwbacks

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers have worn many jerseys since 1995.  There have been throwbacks, pinks, camouflage, batting practice, sleeveless, the regular ones that were worn for most games, and a few that you may have forgotten.  This feature is to take a look at those jerseys.

This week, the Throwback Friday jerseys that were worn for Friday home games during the 2006 season.

That was the season Wisconsin wore jerseys just like the 1960 Fox Cities Foxes.

The blue tint to that photo doesn’t really give the true feeling of those jerseys.

Here’s a photo of Boog Powell in action from the 1960 season:

The reason that the jerseys of the 1960 Foxes were chosen was because Cal Ripken, Sr., a member of that 1960 team, was inducted into the Appleton Professional Baseball Hall of Fame that season. Please, pardon the vacation slides to show you the Ripken Bobblehead. It’s kind of a long story…

Now that you have a general idea of what the jerseys looked like in 1960. Here’s how some of the players looked in those classic jerseys during the 2006 season.

Eddy Hernandez posed for his baseball card in this photo:

This is also a photo of Vega. I chose this to show off the patch with the FC and the Fox on the left sleeve. He can kind of see it on the left sleeve of Boog Powell in his photo. It’s much clearer in this shot of Vega. (Click on the photo to enlarge the image).  That is attention to detail.

The 2006 throwback jerseys may be my favorites.  They are a clean, classic look.  Plus, that Foxes patch is pretty neat.

Back next Thursday with a look at another jersey from Timber Rattlers history.
