MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL FEVER
Celebrate with the Snakes at Hertz Field
From Birthdays to Bar Mitzvahs!
The ongoing problem with the toxic seepage in center field at Hertz Field has forced the Snakes to move the remainder of their Spring Training to Clarendon Elementary School in Secaucus. Monday (4/17) the Brooklyn Cyclones will travel to Clarendon to play the Snakes in the final exhibition game before Opening Day. The Snakes remind fans that seating will be limited.
The Jersey City Snakes will be entering the 2006 baseball season with a lot less game experience than before.
Heavy rains have forced cancellation of nine of the team's 10 exhibition games thus far. But yesterday, Mother Nature provided sunny skies for the Snakes' pre-season match up with the Staten Island Yankees. Unfortunately, a sprinkler pipe ruptured in the fifth inning, flooding the infield before the water main could be shut off and causing the cancellation of the game.
The bad luck may turn out to be a blessing for the Snakes who have suffered a rash of injuries and can use the time off to heal up.
Jake Banks (2B) - twisted elbow, skin rash
Billy Ray Mix (1B) - strained hamstring, viral infection, respiratory congestion
Gunther Rodriguez (OF) - compound ankle fracture (injured reserve for the season), skin rash

Champ Leigh (LHP) - Champ's infection and attendant rash has almost completely disappeared and he has been cleared to play on Opening Day. Way to go, Champ!
