I am pretty sure that ‘Ive Got You Babe’ was the song that was playing on my clock/radio this morning.
No doubleheader today. But, this team intro video will be played again at the stadium this season…eventually.
Now, the reason you are all here. Snowy Stadium Pictures. When does Andie MacDowell show up so she and I can build a snowman?
I may talk a walk to the pedestrian bridge that crosses Highway 41 later today….I may go see ’42’ today….I may just curl up under my desk and wait for April….It is April? Could’ve fooled me.
Hilary Bauer is the new onfield host for the Timber Rattlers. She took over the tour guide duties for Renovation Update: Episode 18 while I was in Arizona for Spring Training.
The episode is below.
I did manage to get over there for a few pictures on Wednesday. Where to start….where to start???
Now, to the part of the renovations you want to see:
This old photos are a nice touch:
And now, Hilary Bauer’s debut on Renovation Update:
I just want to state that it was snowing when we shot the video and photos on Monday. At the very moment that I write this post, it is not snowing.
A little news. This is my final Renovation Update video. I will be in Arizona from March 21 through March 26. Hilary Bauer, the new onfield host for the Timber Rattlers, will be taking over for Episode 18 as we get closer and closer to completion of this project.
In the video this week, banquet facility, concessions, restrooms, suites, home radio booth, and ticket windows….not necessarily in that order.
Pictures first. Video second.
And since this is where I’ll be spending the majority of my time, I will start with Home Radio:
Here is what my brothers in sound from around the MWL have in store for them:
The press box has been expanded, too:
Inside a suite on the club level:
Yes. This photo was taken on a different day. At least the Sun was out when I took this one.
We tried some different camera movements in this video! Enjoy!
Just like last week. Pictures first. Video second.
If you’ll indulge me, here is my new apartment…I mean, home radio booth.
This is the new bullpen area. Bullpen as in “area for office workers” not as in “place for pitchers to warm up before entering a game”.
If you look to the right when you are near the front of the stadium, you will see the new entrance to the front office.
If you look to the left from the same spot, you will see the new team store.
And here is the view from one of the upstairs camera platforms:
Let’s get this snow out of here!
In the meantime, here is the video:
We have video!
Video from the suites. Video from the Club level. Video from the Team Store. Video from the home radio booth. Video from the weight room
Episode 12 is available.
We will start filming again after January 1 so this is the last episode of the new year.
However, I did get over to the site yesterday to take a few photos from the center field.
It is snowing today. No. Check that. It is a CLASS THREE KILLSTORM today. If it lets up by lunch, I may try to get over to the ballpark and take a photo or two to show how the project progressed in a CLASS THREE KILLSTORM! (Editor’s note: Classic Simpson’s quotes never get old.)

The above scenes were captured for Episode Eight of the Renovation Update. Here is Episode Seven:
Big News. This is Big News in our corner of the sky.
The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers will need to renovate their trophy case inside Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium. Minor League Baseball announced the Midwest League affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers as winners of the National Larry MacPhail Award, which symbolizes the top promotional effort in Minor League Baseball.
“The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers do an exceptional job of not only promoting their club in the community, but also of trying to tie in an element that benefits its residents in their ballpark promotions, as well,” Pat O’Conner, President of Minor League Baseball, said in a release earlier today. “The Timber Rattlers have programs and promotions in place for fans of all ages, including several geared towards improving behavior and lifestyle of area youths.”
“Wisconsin’s use of various social media to promote themselves, especially through their mobile web site that allows fans to interact during games, as well as throughout the off-season, merits their selection as the winner of the 2012 Larry MacPhail Award,” said O’Conner.
The award has been given annually since 1966.

*- It was Opening Night on Thursday in Puerto Rico. Just ex-Rattlers who played this week. Stats next week.
Ever wanted to see me standing on a pile of rubble? That is how Renovation Update opens Episode Five:
Photos of stuff for next week’s episode:
It’s been busy since returning home from Fort Wayne on Monday evening. I’ll have a bit more on everything next week or throughout the offseason.
For now, here is the video of the final three outs from Game Four with my audio track. Plus, a bit of the celebration and the trophy presentation. For the record, I am positive that I said Jose Valentin and didn’t just leave it as The Fort Wayne Manager*
*I am pretty positive…In the words of Frank the Tank after the debate with James Carville, “What happened? I blacked out.”
