Cumberlanders Win Home Opener

Defending their home grounds of the Hermitage, the Cumberlanders defeated the visiting Lightfoot Club of Chattanooga, 15-8. This is their second win of the season and first home opening win in club history.

Rico, Spoons, and Fish played highlight defense when they turned a 5-4-3 double play to end both a Lightfoot threat and the inning.

Sharkbait had a strong 8th inning on defense when she began and ended one of the final Lightfoot threats. She began the inning with an outfield assist from right center field to nail the leadoff runner at third with a strong relay from Ozark. After a defensive change, due to an appearance from Lightfoot slugger Bear with runners on base, she ended the inning with a 4-3 groundout assist to Fish.

Burnside made his first appearance of the season by scoring one run and driving in two RBI, while also playing spectacular defense at the first sack.

Cornstalk lead the middle of the lineup for the Cumberlanders with six at-bats, four hits, three runs while driving in one runner.

Shadetree continued his strong start at the plate by 3 for 4 with two runs and two RBI while also striking out one Lightfoot batsman. He was awarded the game ball for his efforts.

The Cumberlanders next game is on May 22nd, as they travel to Murfreesboro to play the Emmett Machinists of Knoxville at Oaklands Mansion. First pitch is scheduled for noon.

Cumberlanders Shoo Farriers, 18-4

The Cumberland Club of Nashville opened the 2022 Vintage Base Ball season up with a win over the Franklin Farriers at Carnton Plantation in Franklin, Tennessee. It is both their first win at Carnton and their first opening day win in club history.

Up and down the lineup, contributions came from everyone as each Cumberlander had a multi-hit day. New comers Rico, Country Bumpkin, and Young Pepper all drew their first hits and drove in their first RBI. Veterans Shadetree, Fish, and Spoons all hurled scoreless innings, leading the defense to their most impressive performance yet.

Finally, second year Cumberlander Speck reached base five times in as many at-bats, while also scoring three times of his own. Speck was also a major factor on defense with more than a few infield assists by sweeping up hard to play dribblers in front of home plate.
