Where they played last season

This summary is based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

The 2007 Rattlers are based on last year's Everett Aqua Sox, but have been significantly bolstered from many other sources.

Team           League          W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                     (Teams)
Inland Empire  California (A+) 72/68  5(10)       2        1
Wisconsin      Midwest (A)     54/86 13(14)       3        1
Everett        Northwest (A-)  31/45  6(8)        6        8
Mariners       Arizona (R)     25/30  5(9)        3        1

Many of these players appeared on two rosters last summer and are counted twice in this table. Two played briefly at the Triple-A level, another had a Double-A outing, and still another played for the Mariners' Dominican Summer squad. One player was acquired from another organization, and two have apparently never played professionally.
