#2: Next week at this time, I will be completely dehydrated from all the flop sweat, stale jokes, and bad questions during the Leadoff Experience.
The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers are proud to welcome Gord Ash, Vice-President - Assistant General Manager of the Milwaukee Brewers as the featured guest at the 2009 Lead-Off Experience. The event, formerly known as the Welcome Home Banquet, will feature an interactive interview program hosted by Rattlers radio play-by-play announcer Chris Mehring. Fans attending the event will hear from the newest Timber Rattlers players along with the new coaching staff, including field manager Jeff Isom, pitching coach Chris Hook and hitting coach & Appleton resident Matt Erickson.Some seats are still available. To help save me by asking good questions...because the Q&A session is interactive for the fans...contact the Timber Rattlers at (920)733-4152. Good times. Good times.
