At the end of 3 weekends of play, the Franklin Farriers stand at 2-1 and in 4th place in the TAOVBB league standings.
April 19: Farriers fall to Scouts at Historic Sam Davis Home, 16-9, in a game delayed twice by storms. The Scouts jumped ahead early and held off the visiting team’s comeback. All fans in attendance were treated to one of the most unique matches in league history. 3 pairs of britches were split, and all men emerged soggy. MVP (Muddiest Vintage Player) went to Taylor Baby Bear Bloss.
May 2: Farriers beat Holstons, 10-8, on a beautiful spring day in Knoxville. After falling behind 7-3 through 4 innings, Franklin claws back to take the lead in the bottom of the 8th. Key hits came from Buttermilk Roberts, Toothpick Ramey, and Meatball Morgan. The Hooligan tallied an ace from 2nd base to add the insurance run and put the Farriers ahead by the final score.
Next game: 5/17 at Historic Carnton Plantation vs. Phoenix VBBC of East Nashville.
