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!

It’s warm enough for practice!

Well… sort of. This weekend the boys in red and grey braved the snow and mud and took to the fields of Edwin Warner Park. We welcomed new member Jason “Big Dipper” Franke to the fold, and had some productive BP and fielding drills. The best part? No injuries! HUZZAH!
