The Arizona Rattlers will celebrate Throwback Night as they host the Chicago Rush on Saturday, July 20th, on the Ak-Chin Field at US Airways Center. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. This is the last regular season home game for the Rattlers before they go on to compete in the National Conference Semifinals.
The Arizona Rattlers will be hosting a Rattlers #ThrowbackShowdown. Fans are encouraged to submit pictures of themselves dressed in their old "throwback" Rattlers gear via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ThrowbackShowdown. Photos can be submitted starting today. One lucky fan will win a pair of tickets to the National Conference Semifinals on Sunday, August 4.
The winning doesn't stop there! Fans are also encouraged to wear their throwback gear to the game on Saturday night. Three fans who are dressed in their throwback Rattlers gear will be selected to take part in the in-game Throwback Showdown, where the Snake Pit will decide the winner. The winner will take home a Rattlers Prize Pack.
During halftime there will be a Rattlers Alumni Event. The event will feature over 20 former players ranging from the Rattlers' first season all the way to 2011. A majority of the Sidewinders alumni dancers will also be performing a routine during halftime. Alumni will join current players and dancers on the field after the game to meet with fans and sign autographs.
There will also be an online auction of the Rattlers' throwback jerseys. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Granite Mountain Hotshots of the Prescott Fire Department, who lost 19 members while battling the Yarnell Hill Fire on Sunday, June 30. The auction of the autographed throwback jerseys will go live on www.azrattlers.com on Saturday, July 20.
Tickets for the game can be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com, by phone at 602-514-TDTD (8383) or at the Arena box office.
