NASHVILLE -- The Town of Nashville's Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department held its Spring Sports Opening Day last Saturday.
Glover Park was bustling with excitement and anticipation.
Teams had been practicing for two weeks prior to Opening Day.
The day kicked off with an appearance by Muddy the Mudcat and an opening pitch to Muddy from Hank Raper, Town Manager.
Games started at 10 a.m. and continued through 2 p.m.
Ten T-ball teams are playing with the Town of Nashville this season, double the number of teams compared to last spring.
Many teams have first-time players and coaches so increasing the level of involvement and excitement in this year's program.
The Nashville Fire Department T-Ball team was even visited by their own mascot, Sparky.
In softball, the George's Barbeque versus Highway 55 game ended in a riveting draw of 3 runs to 3 runs.
Hannah Carpenter hit an in-park home run for George's Barbeque.
Excitement continued in Rookie League baseball as Cornerstone Funeral Home played a double header.
They lost in their first game to Domino's Pizza 6-5.
Cornerstone topped Evan's Farm Rookie in their second game 15-11, despite an in-park home run by Tripp Evans.
Fans are invited to attend games this season which will be played every Saturday at Glover Park. Concessions are available so come hungry and ready to support the town's youth.
