Timber Rattlers, MiLB cancel season

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers will have to wait until 2021 to play ball.


Minor League Baseball announced Tuesday that the season across all levels was canceled due to COVID-19. It marks the first year without professional baseball in the Appleton area since 1957, according to a release from the Timber Rattlers. The organization is working with Major League Baseball to see if socially distanced crowds can be spectators to check out workouts at the ballpark since Fox Cities Stadium will be an alternate training site for the Milwaukee Brewers. Members of the "taxi squad" will keep their skills sharp in Grand Chute just in case the Brewers need to call a player.


The Timber Rattlers are still planning on hosting some events at the stadium this summer, including fireworks this weekend.
