Jerseys of the Rattlers – Brewers Sunday (2012)

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 2012.

These weren’t based on a past Brewers uniform.  The 2012 version were based on the Brewers Batting Practice Jerseys at the time.  They still look really sharp.

The photo above and the photo below show off the front of the jersey.  As opposed to the 2010 & 2011 Brewers Sunday jerseys, the 2012 Jerseys used the Timber Rattlers regular font instead of using the Brewers lettering.

This is my favorite photo of the team in their Brewers Sunday jerseys from 2012.  Yadiel Rivera is greeted at home plate after his walkoff homer against Beloit that put the Rattlers in position to clinch a first half playoff spot.

The dark navy blue socks fit in well with this photo.  There’s something about this photo that is a bit off.  I’ll come back to it later, but see if you notice it, too.

This is a pretty good picture for two reasons.  The first is the Brewers Sunday hats.  It’s the alternate logo on a dark hat and I like them.  The second reason this is a pretty good picture is the sad Kane County catcher starting to walk away from the impending celebration.

Look out, Max!

Here’s a better look at the hats as modeled by Adrian Williams and Yadiel Rivera.  Yadi is also showing off the Brewers “M” patch on the left sleeve.

It should be obvious in this Brandon Macias photo. The helmet has the Brewers “M” logo. Not the Timber Rattlers “TR” Logo.

Let’s take a look at some of the Auction winners.  The 2012 Live Auction had to be held in the Leinie Lodge.  A rather intense downpour started right after the game.  And by intense, I mean biblical.   But, everyone who went home with a jersey was pretty happy about it.  You will also notice that the 2012 Brewers Sunday Jersey Auction was not the first jersey auction won by some of the fans.

Jerseys of the Rattlers – 2011 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.

These are my favorites.  I may like these more than I like the regular jerseys.

The 2011 Brewers Sunday jerseys were designed with the uniforms of the Crew from 1975-1976 in mind. NAILED IT!

Jump around!

Jump around!

The best part of these jerseys is that there is no “Timber” patch placed above the “RA” in “RATTLERS”.  That would have messed with the cleaner look of just “RATTLERS” and the number.

STOSH!

As you can see a little better in this number, the number on the front turned out great.

The numbers on the back are big and easy to read.

The Blue-Yellow-Blue stripes in the sleeves are pretty sharp, too.

The tricky part of these jerseys were the caps.  The Brewers had a block “M” on the cap.  While not exactly the same as that block “M”, I like the way the Yellow “TR” turned out on the blue Sunday caps for the Rattlers.

Tricky but I think it works.

Tricky but I think it works.

They only problem was that there were no blue Under Armor shirts to wear under the jerseys.  The black looks off.  But, it was cold early in the season and guys had to be warm.  You’ll give up style for warmth almost every time.

Jerseys of the Rattlers – 2010 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.

The 2010 Timber Rattlers continued the tradition of Brewers Sunday by wearing jerseys based on their parent club.  The 1982 road jerseys the inspiration this season.  They were a big hit.

The first thing…Pinstripes aren’t popular among some people around these parts, so the Home jerseys were out.  Also, “Timber Rattlers” wouldn’t have looked right on the pinstriped home jerseys.  So, the road jerseys were selected so that “Wisconsin” could be used on the front.

Can you named the Timber Rattlers in this picturee anthem.

I believe that 2010 was the first year that the team had a live auction after the final Sunday home game of the year.  In 2009, the silent auction was the tool used to let fans try to win their favorite jersey.  That all changed…for the better.

The questions here are: Did these fans wear this Khris Davis jersey home or did they put it in a frame the next day or did they wear it for a couple of years and put it in a frame after he made the big leagues last year?

I'm guessing it's in a frame now.

Jerseys of the Rattlers – Brewers Sunday (2009)

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.

In the fall of 2008, the Timber Rattlers became an affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers.  The Rattlers announced Brewers Sunday as part of that new partnership.  The team would wear the Timber Rattlers jerseys based on those of their new parent club.  They have all turned out pretty cool.

For the next few weeks, this series will look at the Brewers Sunday jerseys of the Rattlers.  The Timber Rattlers will have a Brewers Sunday again in 2014 and will announce the Jerseys soon.  I’ve seen the design.  It will be awesome.

The jerseys from the 2009 season are up first.

The first Brewers Sunday jerseys were based on the BP tops of the Brewers.  The best example on the web of those Brewers jerseys is Frank Catalanotto’s…which was up for auction last June.  Let’s see how close the Rattlers got to that look.

All photos in this post were taken by Wm. Glasheen.

The color looks just right.

There is yet to be a definitive look at the entire front of the jersey.  Who will come through for us and make sure you see it in all it’s glory?  I know…Brock Kjeldgaard will.

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.

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 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.
