Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute, WI - a suburb of Appleton, WI - is the home of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, the Milwaukee Brewers' Midwest League farm team. It was also the Brewers' 2020-2021 Coronavirus pandemic alternate training site.

When Fox Cities Stadium opened in 1995, the Appleton Foxes changed both their locale name and their nickname - but the corporate name remained Appleton Baseball Inc. until Third Base Ventures bought the operation in 2020. "Fox Cities", named after the Fox River, is a region containing 20 different municipalities with Appleton being the largest; the stadium has an Appleton ZIP code but maps show it lies physically in Grand Chute.

On March 9, 2007, it was announced that local cable provider Time Warner Cable had signed a 10-year deal securing naming rights to the physical playing field making the park's full name Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium. The cable company opted out seven years into the contract, and the current sponsor stepped in immediately. Although both contracts named the field rather than the stadium, their names were fully incorporated into primary ballpark signage.

FCS replaced Goodland Field in nearby Appleton. It is one of the few modern minor league parks without skyboxes. It does, however, have a unique take on something other team do. Many teams shoot goods into the stands with some kind of air cannon. Usually, the "something" is T-shirts; here, the air cannon is called a Bratzooka and the products are bratwurst sandwiches.[1]
