He loves snakes. For some horrible reason. Because of that, his favorite Minor League logo is of the Timber Rattlers.
That information comes at about :19 seconds of the video.
No relation to this Boog Powell, who was a member of the Fox Cities Foxes in 1960:
I have known Ben Chiswick since he was at Quad Cities…not that long ago. Ben has worked as the play-by-play announcer the last several seasons with the West Michigan Whitecaps. Now, he’s leaving the profession.
When Ben Chiswick was hired five years ago to become the play-by-play announcer for the West Michigan Whitecaps, he didn’t have a daughter and the location was closer to his Illinois home than his previous job.
But times change, and Chiswick has informed the Whitecaps he will not return for a sixth season for family reasons.
“It was a difficult decision, a family decision and it wasn’t anything that I necessarily planned or saw coming,” said Chiswick, who lives in Gurnee, Ill.
“As you know, there is a lot of travel in this business, and for myself being out of state, it was a lot of time being out of state, and my daughter is getting older. I just didn’t want to be away from home as much anymore.”
Good Luck, Ben.

If you are a fan of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers facebook page or if you follow the Timber Rattlers twitter feed, you already know about this. BUT, in case you are not either one of those here is some information on a contest going on now through December 15.
Take a picture of yourself with any of the new logos.
Creativity counts. Boy, that sounds like something from grade school. I may have some “fake” samples up later today.
Now, these are photoshopped and after a brief discussion, we will not be accepting photoshop entries. But, here are some ideas for you to jump off on with your own entries. Perhaps a recreation of some of these?
“I think it’s been 16 years and it was just time for a refresh,” team president Rob Zerjav said. “Our logo has been extremely popular but, at the same time, everything with age, it can use a rebranding and we thought it was time.”It’s somewhat of a calculated risk as, according to Timber Rattlers merchandise manager Jay Grusznski, since the team introduced its logo, it has been one of the top-25-selling logos in all of minor league baseball for 14 of 15 years.A program that helps keep them there is an affiliation with youth baseball, where the Timber Rattlers are part of a select group of minor-league teams — roughly 30 out of 160 — whose logo and jersey can be purchased by youth baseball teams around the country.
Post-Crescent Photo Gallery. This Wm. Glasheen photo my be my favorite.
The year was 1994. The Appleton Foxes had just wrapped up their final season at Goodland Field. The decision had been made that there would be a new name and new logo to go with the new stadium.
The reason for this particular Flashback this week is the announcement of the new logos on the way for the Timber Rattlers. (By the way, you may check out Fang’s new countdown video over here. Good grouping!)
Where was I?…..Oh, right, 1994! Below are four logos (and three names) that were considered as a replacement for the Appleton Foxes. There will be a link to the Flashback on this post when it goes up on the main website. For now, enjoy and think what might have been. (UPDATE: Here’s that link. Read through to see which other teams were in the running with Seattle to be the parent club of Appleton Pro Baseball)
Hello. Behind this curtain, there are three new logos for the team. This is the announcement that the Timber Rattlers teased a bit on Facebook, twitter, and right here at Rattler Radio last week. You may read the release at the main website to read a little more about the new logos.
I would also take this opportunity to state that I am an idiot.
