Renovated Time Warner Cable Field

I do not mind returning to Appleton, Wisconsin to take on the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.  The hotel has a huge mall across the street, lots of food options, and a movie theater within walking distance. That came in good use last night as we were rained out and a group of us went to see the Karate Kid.

The team plays at Time Warner Cable Field and a nice size crowd usually shows up to watch.  What makes this visit even better is to see the large amount of renovations that have taken place at the field. The biggest difference are the fact that the bullpens are no longer down the lines, and now behind the center field wall.  To see pictures from last years trip, please click HERE.  Below I will add some newer pictures that I took yesterday walking around before the game was canceled.

I hope to get plenty of good pictures today as it is Star Wars Night at the park, and the team will wear special uniforms.  I REALLY REALLY want to get my hands on one, so we will see what happens.

Hate this dugout because there is NO rail

Nothing worse than seeing the tarp on the field

Tons of standing water on outfield track

One thing I really love about Wisconsin, all the tailgating!

“The one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. Its been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good, and what could be again.”
