Jerseys of the Rattlers – 2008 Stars & Stripes

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.

The Timber Rattlers had a rare occurrence in 2008.  There had a homestand over the Independence Day holiday.

These Red, White, & Blue jerseys were worn over three games – July 4, 5, & 6.  The July 4th game was against the Peoria Chiefs.  The games on July 5 and 6 were against the Beloit Snappers.

The anthem!

The flag going across the chest is really nice.

It was a late arriving crowd that night.

I'm pretty sure that's Juan Diaz at the plate.

The stars on the back of the jersey made the numbers a little hard to read.  But, that is a “15″.

That would be a "What is he swinging at?" look on the face of the player walking in the background.

In this picture, you will notice that the team wore the Appleton Papermakers throwback hats as part of the uniform.

Remember when the bullpens were cut into the stands like that?

Seriously though…the bullpen should be in the background of every picture.

Did anyone in that bullpen want to be there that day?

Phillippe Aumont, a Canadian, was a member of the Rattlers that season.

We raised some money for a good cause with these jerseys.
