Jerseys of the Rattlers – 2013 Star Wars

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 sixth Star Wars night in team history was held on June 8, 2013.

I’m still not sure how I feel about the red numbers on the back of the jerseys.

There was no traditional photo of the manager with Darth Vader.  This photo of the manager at the plate conference will have to do for this post.

This would be a better look at the patch.

The team liked these jerseys because they got to wear the pinstripe pants.  They loved the pinstripe pants because they could cover their shoetops.

This was a mound meeting and it happened pretty early in the game, if I am remembering it right.

These next few photos have nothing to do with the jerseys.  But, the production crew got imaginative for the video board identifiers.  These are some of my favorites…pay no attention to the statistics in each slide.  They are incorrect.

Good.

#3.) Parker Berberet

#2.) Victor Roache

#1.) Orlando Arcia, who should totally grow that mustache in real life.

Jerseys of the Rattlers – 2012 Star Wars

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 fifth Star Wars night in team history was held on June 9, 2012.

This version of the jersey is based on Return of the Jedi.

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.

Wisconsin hosted their third and fourth Star Wars Nights during the 2010 & 2011 seasons.  These Star Wars Nights were different from the others due to a simple fact.  The team wore the same jersey design both years.

The 2010 Star Wars Night was held on June 12:

The design was based on the armor worn by the Imperial Stormtroopers.

It looks a lot less threatening on a mascot.

Here’s a closeup on the logo.  Yes, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin was the sponsor for these.

The snake in the logo even got into the act.

But, you get the general idea.

Rattlers manager Jeff Isom did not feel like Force Choking someone that day.

Thumbs up indeed!

Jake Odorizzi was the starter on that day for the Timber Rattlers.  He allowed four runs on four hits and four walks with no strikeouts over four innings.  The Force was not with him on this day.

Scooter Gennett was the second baseman for the Rattlers.  He went 1-for-5 with a run scored.

Cutter Dykstra was at third base in this 2010 game.  He also went 1-for-5, but he hit a two-run home run.

The 2011 Star Wars Night was held on June 11 and manager Matt Erickson got into the “Pose with Vader” tradition.

The 2011 Timber Rattlers who would participate in the All-Star Game at Quad Cities were introduced to the fans before the game.  From left to right that should be: Mike Walker, Austin Ross, Tyler Thornburg, and Chris Dennis.

The first Star Wars night of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers was held in 2008.  Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of photos from that year.  But, these photos should show off the design.

That’s Ron Garth on the left of the first photo and staring straight into the camera.  This shot shows off the X-Wing underneath the ‘R’ in Rattlers.  You can also just see the patch on the player with his left leg up on the top step of the dugout.

The second Star Wars Night held by the Timber Rattlers was in 2009.  The design was Timber Rattlers in the Star Wars font with a green lightsaber under the team name.

I think that they turned out pretty well.

The Jim Henderson autograph just adds to it.

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 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?

First, Happy Thanksgiving!

ThanksgivingSince it’s still Deer Hunting Season in Wisconsin, I thought a nice tie-in for the Jersey Thursday post would be the Outdoors Night jerseys that the team wore on  June 22, 2013.

Rodolfo Fernandez and Orlando Arcia probablty hadn't seen anything like these jerseys.

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers were home for Mother’s Day on May 9, 2010.  The team wore pink jerseys to raise money for charity.  But, they didn’t go with JUST a pink jersey.  They took their inspiration from the rainbow jerseys of the Houston Astros….More teams should do that:

A group of Timber Rattlers players were on hand before the game to escort Moms to the pregame buffet:

Game time approached and the fans had the opportunity to see the players in the full uniform:

Jerseys of the Rattlers – 1997 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.

The  1997 Timber Rattlers celebrated decided to wear throwbacks to the 1947 Appleton Papermakers.  The team wore these throwbacks for every Friday home game.  This was captured for posterity in one of my favorite team photos of all time.

The classic cars alone make this a great photo!

The classic cars alone make this a great photo!

I wanted to crop out the extraneous material and focus in on the team.

Just the team.

Just the team.

There are a couple of things that pop in this next shot.  First, yes, the jerseys have pinstripes.  Next, take a look at the socks on the grouping of five players in the front row.  They aren’t socks, they are stirrups and that completes the look.  Also, the best look of the Apple logo on the left sleeve is seen best on the player who is second from the right.  That player is Brian Fuentes.

An Apple with the word "TON" inside. BRILLIANT!

Over on the left is a good representation of the Throwback caps.  The hat design, but not the jersey design, was reused for the Papermakers Throwback jerseys in 2008.

This hat is my favorite 'Throwback' hat.

This hat is my favorite ‘Throwback’ hat.

Here is a look at the ‘A’ on the left chest.  Also, can you guess which of these players are hitters and which are pitchers?  No hints….GO!

Come on, guys. Smile!

Come on, guys. Smile!

Additionally, since this photo was taken in front of the stadium in 1997, you can really tell the changes to that area since that time.

Play Ball!

There have been a few.
