Jerseys of the Rattlers – 2013 Brewers Sunday

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 Brewers Sunday jerseys of 2013.

Those jerseys were based on the batting practice tops of the Brewers from the early 90’s.  They are best remembered in photos  featuring Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, and Jim Gantner…like this one:

Pretty darn close if you ask me:

Even the Timber looks right.

The blue pinstriped pants make the outfit, too.

Doesn't matter how near or how far you see the jersey from, it looks so good.

Another key part is the patch on the left sleeve.

The ball & glove logo looks great on every jersey.

The snake head logo on the hat isn’t exactly like the “Ball & Glove” logo on the Brewers hats of that era.  However, the shade of blue for the hat and the shade of yellow for the logo are perfect matches.  That makes the hat work.

Marco Estrada is the only player from 2013 to wear his pant legs up to show off the blue sanitary socks.  The pinstripe pants allowed everyone else to wear the pant legs in the style of the day.
