GRAND CHUTE (AP) — The home of the Milwaukee Brewers Class A minor league affiliate will get a multi-million dollar upgrade.

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and the Fox Cities Amateur Sports Authority announced details of the renovation Thursday.

The $5.5 million to $6 million dollar facelift will add a second level to the stadium that will include six new suites and a banquet hall that will be open year-round.

Timber Rattlers general manager Rob Zerjav says the renovation of the 18-year-old ballpark will put it back in the upper echelon off all minor league stadiums.

The renovations are expected to be done in time for the 2013 season opener. The Fox Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau will contribute $400,000 to the project if the Grand Chute Town Board agrees to it.
