3 TIME ABA Champions Are Back!

May 4th - The Rattlers were flattttttt early on but after the 7th inning run by the Rangers of Roseland it sparked a fire under the Rattlers bats to get a jump start.  That inning they would put four runs across the board and not lift off the pedal until after the 8th inning where they would put up another 5 runs.  The Rattlers would give up one more run in the top of the 9th but hold onto a 10-3 victory to go 4-1 on the early year. 

The Rangers were once again a classy team that even played against the Elite National Division (AA) team with no problem even when they are in the ABA Northern Wood Division (AAA).  Truly class acts and was a pleasure to play them.  We, the Rattlers, wish them the best of luck in 2014 in capture of a championship which they have undoubted a high chance of doing so!  Good Luck Rangers!

April 27th - The home opener for the Rockaway Rattlers was the first double header of the season.  Where the Rattlers would welcome in the Sparta Brewers to Oak Meadows Field.  The Rattlers would come up with some big hits and good pitching performances today to capture a sweep of a double header.  In the first game the Rattlers would blank the Brewers 7 to 0 in a well played fast pace game in the ABA.  Two hours for an ABA game is great!!  In the second game the Rattlers would secure a 5-3 victory in another quality game!  Always a good time facing the Sparta based team because of the simple fact they can have fun throughout!  We will see them in the future for sure.

April 14th - Week 2 watched the bats of the Rattlers fade off to sleep in depressing fashion.  Without being able to mustard up any timely hitting or string together hits until the 9th inning to tie the ball game at 2 a piece.  It would be the 10th where the Rattlers would fall drunken to the Yagerbombers and lose on a walk off hit by cleanup hitter Steve Gonzalez.  Rattlers are off next Sunday for Easter Break and will be back in action Sunday April 27th for their first double header of the season at home in Oak Meadows Field.

April 7th -  Week 1 was a successful come back for the Rattlers when they defeated a tough opponent of the Brooklyn Dodgers 10-0.  The score may appear to be lopsided but the game itself was 100 times closer then that.  Excellent effort by both teams in the first weekend of games of the new year, I am sure we will see these guys again and most definitely in the playoffs!
