The Nashville Maroons fell short of the pennant and the Sulphur Dell Cup in a very competitive 2021 season. This year, they have added two new players, Broadway and Sparky. With a lineup of 15, they plan to be quite the opponents in every match this year. They will kick off the season at the Oaklands Cup on Sunday, April 3rd at the Oaklands Mansion in Murfreesboro TN. This will be a battle between three other TAOVBB teams, The Stones River Scouts, The Franklin Farriers, and The Phoenix of East Nashville.
