Brewers will use Fox Cities Stadium as a practice site for Triple-A players

GRAND CHUTE – Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium will be an alternate training site for the Milwaukee Brewers beginning April 12.

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers stadium will host players who will eventually make it to the Nashville Sounds roster, the Brewers’ Class AAA affiliate. They will be gearing up for the Triple-A season, which is set to begin on May 4.

Players training at Fox Cities Stadium will be announced once the Brewers finalize their Opening Day roster. Milwaukee opens the regular season April 1 at home against the Minnesota Twins.

Timber Rattlers officials said Thursday they were working with Brewers Player Development and Major League Baseball on protocols that would allow fans to attend practices and scrimmages.

Neuroscience Group Field was also used as an alternate training site by the Brewers last summer.

A few familiar faces will return to Neuroscience Group Field as members of the Nashville coaching staff. Jim Henderson, who played and coached for the Timber Rattlers, is the pitching coach for the Sounds and former Timber Rattlers hitting coach Al LeBoeuf is the hitting coach for Nashville.

Rick Sweet is manager of the Sounds and is entering his eighth consecutive season as manager of the Triple-A affiliate in Milwaukee. Ned Yost IV, the son of former Brewers player and manager Ned Yost, is also on the Sounds’ coaching staff.

The Timber Rattlers, Milwaukee’s High-A affiliate, will train in Arizona following the start of the Brewers’ regular season and are scheduled to open their regular season May 4 at home against the Beloit Snappers.
