Scooter vs. Snowman Bobblehead for Opening Day

PRESS RELEASE – The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers have taken the lemon from a snowed out Opening Day in 2010 and turned it into a one-of-a-kind collectable for Opening Day, 2011. The Rattlers and Time Warner Cable will give away a bobblehead to all fans attending their game against the Kane County Cougars on Thursday, April 7. The bobblehead is titled Scooter vs. The Snowman.

The bobblehead is based on a picture of Scooter Gennett, a top prospect in the Milwaukee Brewers minor league system and a 2010 Midwest League All-Star, taking a swing at a snowman built by the players just after the first game of last season was called off due to snow on April 8, 2010.

Currently, a ticket package is the only way to secure an Opening Day ticket. Individual game tickets will go on sale at a later date. Fans can guarantee themselves the bobblehead and receive a free ticket to Opening Day by purchasing a 10-game ticket package for the 2011 Timber Rattlers season. Ten game ticket packages include Weekend, Weekday, Fireworks, and Bang For Your Buck options. The Weekend Package is a mix of games on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season. The Weekday Package includes five Thirsty Thursdays. The Fireworks package includes ten games with post-game fireworks displays. The Bang For Your Buck Package includes the popular nights with soda, hotdogs, and beer for $1. A reserved seat 10-game ticket package is $65 per seat. A 10-game box seat ticket package is $85 per seat.

As a 10-game ticket package holder, fans will receive these additional benefits:

  • Buyback Program: If you cannot attend one of the games in your package, you may exchange it in advance for another game or receive credit toward the following season
  • A discount of at least 10% off the regular ticket price
  • Guaranteed giveaway items that fall within your package
  • A picnic with players and coaches during the season
  • A 15% discount in the Team Store

As a reminder, the Timber Rattlers giveaway policy is one item per ticketholder (not per ticket). A fan with multiple tickets will not be permitted to receive more than one giveaway item.
