Jay “Udder Guy” Kauflie in The Washington Post!

While taking part in a series of exhibition matches at Gettysburg with the Hog & Hominy Picked 9, our own Jay “Udder Guy” Kauflie caught the eye of Washington Post reporter/photographer Matt McClain. “Udder Guy” featured in several of the pix accompanying an article about the exhibition. Sample pictures are below (copyright Matt McClain / The Washington Post); the full article can be found HERE. Huzzah to our trusty first-sack fixture!

Phoenix Defense Dominant in 6-2 Victory

Huzzah! Your East-Siders were victorious in their final home match of the season, picking up a hard-fought 6-2 victory over the first-place Highland Rim Distillers. Two 1st-inning runs got Phoenix started, and another in the 3rd was enough to seal the affair. After closing things out, highly-respected HR captain “Old Hoss” snapped the below picture of your victorious squad. Hope to see more friendly faces next Sunday in Smyrna!

Phoenix Unable to Hold On vs. Farriers

Despite an early lead under threatening skies, your loyal Phoenix were unable to hold off the talented Franklin Farriers on Sunday at Carnton Plantation, finally falling 16-12. A 10-man East Nashville squad fought valiantly throughout, succumbling only scant minutes before the terrible storms lashed Middle Tennessee. A tip of our (wet) caps to the Farriers and to all the cranks who braved the elements to join us – Huzzah!

Phoenix Hold On for Hard-Fought Victory in Knoxville!

Your Phoenix of East Nashville travelled to Knoxville to take on the Emmett Machinists in a special double-header day at World’s Fair Park. On a warm day on a fast, bouncy field, Phoenix took a 4-3 lead after the first inning and then held on to squelch a 9th-inning rally by the Machinists, escaping with a 12-10 victory. A tip of the grey caps to our opponents and the good people at the park – Huzzah!

Tough First Loss

Your own Phoenix Club of East Nashville were unable to duplicate their opening-day success, falling in a tough battle to the Nashville Maroons 7-1. The rains held off long enough for the teams to play through at a drenched and muddy Sam Davis Home. The Maroons were just too much on this day for Phoenix, who tip their caps not only to their opponents, but also the fine staff at the venue, who kept the field in more-than-presentable shape.

Phoenix will travel to Knoxville’s World’s Fair Park on May 2nd to challenge league newcomers the Emmett Machinists; sounds like a good excuse for a road trip to support the Red and Grey! Huzzah!

Opening Day Victory!

Your Phoenix of East Nashville made the trip to scenic Carnton Plantation to complete the opening round of games against the Oak Hill Travellers. On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, they held on to beat the Travellers by 14-9. Hats off to our fine opponents, and Hip Hip Hooray for the Red and Grey!

Afterwards, the celebration is on at Drifters in East Nashville. Huzzah!
