See the 2015 Batting Practice Jersey

The contest to design the Timber Rattlers batting practice jersey is over and Alex Laedtke’s design is the winner.

“The design was inspired by the team’s nickname, which is seen in the snakeskin patterned side panels and a custom number font with fang-like styling to complement the Timber Rattlers wordmark logo,” said Laedtke.  “I think this jersey gives the players a fresh, team-specific look that pushes beyond a standard batting practice uniform.”

Take a look!
