GRAND CHUTE, Wis.(WFRV) — The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers will be known by a different name for one game this month.
A new name, the Wisconsin Udder Tuggers, and a new look will be used for the game on June 20 as part of the team’s Salute to Cows promotion in honor of Dairy Month.
Players and coaches will wear special-designed hats and jerseys for the game against the Clinton LumberKings.
The team says jerseys will be available in an online charity auction with proceeds benefiting the Timber Rattlers Charity Fund. More information can be found here.
T-shirts and hats with the Udder Tuggers logo from the Snake Pit Team Store are available online and at the store in the field.
“We started Salute to Cows several years ago and it has been one of our biggest nights of every season. The dairy industry is still very important to the state of Wisconsin and the change to the Udder Tuggers for the night is our way to show support for the dairy industry and also a nod to the dairy farmers of the past,” said Timber Rattlers president Rob Zerjav. “We hope our fans have fun with the new twist on the night.”
The first 1,000 fans to attend the game on that night will receive a Timber Rattlers beach towel from Agropur, Simon’s Specialty Cheese, and biPro.
