The once popular "Timber Rattler Outing" promoted by The Kat and Mick Report has suffered drops in attendance and ticket sales over the past 3 years. While some of the trouble can be blamed on scheduling conflicts with fans being torn between the outing and other family and sports events, much of the blame can fall at the feet of the team itself. The team enjoyed a winning season last year which made attendance climb a little, but so far this year the club has suffered a continuing downward spiral of loss.
With team performance already an issue, other amenities usually enjoyed at the game are in scarcity as well. Fans complained repeatedly of the lack of sound effects usually heard on the stadium's sound system. The customary sound of broken glass when a ball goes over the roof was not even heard until the 5th inning, and other sounds of TV show theme songs, animals making grunting or whooping sounds were not heard at all.
The once cleaver and beautiful female hosts of the game and field that once produced interesting and entertaining games and contests between innings have been replaced by average looking dullards. One female host was unable to tell the difference between a prop airplane and boat and kept referring to the two racing biplanes as "sailboats".

Even though the game was lost by the Rattlers they did play respectable ball and perhaps with a slight adjustment in luck the game could have gone the other way.
Several people ducked out early and missed the fireworks at the end but the majority remained for the show. Fireworks were launched while Jimmy Buffet songs played promoting the Jimmy Buffet party being held in Time Warner Cable Fields new open meeting room above the main entry way. As far as I can tell no one stayed for that party.
