Time for Renovations at Time Warner Cable Field

PRESS RELEASE – The Timber Rattlers are getting ready for their second season as an affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers by making significant changes to the makeup of Time Warner Cable Field.

The renovations include the addition of several new seating areas, moving the bullpens, and extending the current walkway beyond the outfield fence.  Construction is already underway and should be completed by April 8, 2010, which is Opening Day for the Timber Rattlers.

The first new seating area is the “all-you-can-eat” section along the first base line.  This section features three tiers of reserved bar stool seating to accommodate between 60 and 80 fans and will replace the current visiting bullpen.  The area will be available for individuals wishing to take advantage of a great seating option that includes all-you-can-eat hamburgers, brats, hot dogs, chips, potato salad, and cookies along with two beverages.  Tickets may be purchased for $25 per game.  There will also be nine patio tables and 250 box seats added to the third base side of the field replacing the current home bullpen. Patio tables are $52 per game and consist of four tickets and waitstaff service.  Box seats are $8.50 per game and are individual theater style seats with seating closest to the field.

The bullpens will be relocated behind the outfield wall.  The new location for the home bullpen will be to the right of the batter’s eye in centerfield while the new location for the visiting bullpen will be to the left of the batter’s eye.  A 36′ section of the outfield wall in each bullpen will feature a see-through fence to allow fans in the seating bowl the opportunity to view pitchers warming up.

A very unique general admission seating area will be added behind the rightfield fence.  This new area will be a 25’x90′ sand beach. Fans will be able to relax in the sun and watch the game on the first ever developed beach at a Minor League Baseball stadium with a $5 general admission ticket.

Tying the entire project together will be a boardwalk wrapping around the existing Miller High Life Home Run Porch, the beach seating and both bullpens allowing fans the ability to walk out and view the pitchers warming up or to watch the game from a never-before available view at Time Warner Cable Field.  “Over the past few years, we have seen an increased demand for our premium seating areas and with this project we hope to give even more fans the opportunity to utilize our patio tables, box seats, and a great new area along the first base line,” said Timber Rattlers president Rob Zerjav.  “We are also excited about our outfield beach seating which should be a great area for fans of all ages.  It will be a very unique place to watch a game for families looking to let their kids play in the sand or fans looking to catch some rays at the ballgame.”

The Timber Rattlers are currently offering naming rights opportunities to the outfield beach area as well as the “all-you-can-eat” area along the first base line.  For more information about these opportunities, please contact Sarah Heth at (920) 733-4152.  To purchase 2010 ticket packages or season tickets, fans may go to http://www.timberrattlers.com; call 800-WI-TIMBER or (920) 733-4152; or stop by the Time Warner Cable Field Box Office.
