“We’re excited to have Zach back with the Arizona Rattlers, and know he’ll do a great job in public relations and player personnel,” said Guy. “The Rattlers are making a strong commitment to reclaiming our place as a community leader this year, and Zach is the guy who is going to lead that charge.”
The Rattlers also announced that the team has hired Viral Media Worldwide. Formed in 2011, VMW is headed by former Arizona Rattler Director of Public Relations/Player Personnel JACK GORMAN. VMW will assist the team in a variety of areas, particularly in its online presence.
