The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers are the class A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers in the Midwest League. The Timber Rattlers play their home games in Appleton, Wisconsin. We attended tonight’s game as the Timber Rattlers hosted the Kane County Cougars. We arrived at the ballpark early, so we had plenty of time to take photos of the ballpark and get settled in to our seats before the first pitch.
Last night we saw Kane County play a home game in Illinois, and tonight we’re seeing Kane County play as the visitors at Wisconsin.

Appleton is a nice place to see a minor league game. We sampled a famous Wisconsin treat, bratwurst, along with the traditional ballpark hot dogs.
Tomorrow morning, we’ll leave Wisconsin and arrive in Minnesota.
