Nashville – Two 0-3 teams met today. Unfortunately it was the Farriers that left the field 0-4. But not for lack of good play.
The Farriers got on the board after the first 2 batters of the game, and kept at it throughout, posting runs in most innings. Offense was superb, especially Dinger’s long 2-RBI single that could’ve gone foul per Bicentennial Mall’s ground rules, but instead hit the bottom of the right field wall They even tied it up in a 4-run 7th inning, but it was not to last. The Phoenix of East Nashville beat the Franklin Farriers 9-10.
The game started on a beautiful note. The 2 bat boys participated in the bat toss – Cricket vs. the Phoenix youngster using Skim Milk’s small bat. Then two esteemed gentlemen threw out the first pitches. First, Guy Andress, Marine Corps Veteran 1952-54 and Greg Andress’ father, lobbed one to the plate. Then State Senator Jeff Yarbro showed his stuff dressed all in white.
Lonely Planet was on-site interviewing Trapper and getting footage of the players and the game for a pilot they hope to air soon.
