Dwight Floyd Commentary: Rattlers Supporters Show Up BIG

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- You can always count on family and friends of the Ratter baseball team and Rattler diehard fans like me to show up for a Rattler game. What you don’t expect is to hear the MEAC Champion Rattler cheerleaders rooting the team on from the stands or see an organized Rattler baseball alumni squad presenting a check to the FAMU Foundation in between games. From the hill overseeing the rear of the stadium it was a festive occasion as Rattler fans tailgating shared good food and music.

The baseball team responded in resounding fashion out slugging the Bethune Cookman University Wildcats in route to a 15-3 win. FAMU would score in every inning. The aggressive play of the Rattler offense and the steady pitching, double plays (2), and home runs (2) in the first game silenced the bats and the voices of the Bethune Wildcats as they stared at the Rattlers almost in awe at how fast that first game got away. The Wildcats and their fans grew uncharacteristically quiet.
