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!
