Hello friends! We don’t have a finalized schedule for the season yet, but we can verify that opening weekend is April 11-12. It looks like we’ll be down at Carnton Plantation on Sunday, so needless to say you should all come out and join us there. And before that, we’ll be setting up shop at the East Nashville Beer Festival, and you should also come by and join us there. We’ll be handing out schedules and literature, talking about the league and the team, meeting more neighbors, and doing whatever we can to get more cranks out to the games. Join us there, join us Sunday the 12th, and keep on joining us all summer long!

The Chattanooga Pulse ran a nice story about this weekend’s training camp and meet-and-greet in Fort Oglethorpe. Chattanooga will have two teams in the league starting this year. But they needed a good-looking ballist for the front page to draw in readership. Enter Matthew “Dickins” Bavaro-Phelan.
