GRAND CHUTE, WI - The Fox Cities Foxes joined the Midwest League in 1962.  The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, the direct descendant of the Foxes, will celebrate 50 years in the Midwest League with a special "All Fan" giveaway on Opening Night, 2012.  Game time is 6:35pm.

The Rattlers and Time Warner Cable present five different bobbleheads wearing jerseys of past Appleton professional baseball teams as part of an "All Fan" bobblehead giveaway on April 5, 2012.  Fans in attendance that night will take home a piece of Appleton baseball history!
