The mighty men of the Mountain City Club swung back into action Saturday in defense of their consecutive pennant winning seasons of ‘16 and ‘17 by defeating the Cumberland Club of Nashville by the score of 13-1.
Mountain City took the field first and their stout defense picked up right where they left off last season, making quick work of the top of the Cumberlanders order. They then took their turns with the willows and banged out seven hits tallying five aces before surrendering their turn at the dish. Mountain City would go on knock in three aces each in the third and fourth innings to build an insurmountable lead and turn the game over to their stifling defense.
Captain Mat “Taco” Shelby will lead the Mountain City nine back to the field of play again on April 7th at the Tennessee River Park against one of the founding clubs of the TAOVBB, the Franklin Farriers. First pitch is set for high noon, rain or shine.
