Wisconsin baseball team becomes Udder Tuggers for a game during June Dairy Month

GRAND CHUTE (WKOW) – The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers baseball team will have a new name and a new look as they change to the Wisconsin Udder Tuggers for one game in June.

The change in identity is a part of the team’s Salute to Cows promotion, created to celebrate America’s Dairyland during Dairy Month in June.

The team, based outside of Appleton, will use the name on Thursday, June 20, according to a news release from the team.

The players and coaches will wear special-designed hats and jerseys for the game against the Clinton LumberKings.

“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.

Apparently the apparel is going over well. The team tweeted out late Monday afternoon that their Udder Tuggers merchandise sold out.
