Baseball in Nashville

Opening Day is coming!

One of the best sessions at Friday's baseball conference was Skip Nipper's presentation of his research into the old Nashville Vols, who played in the quirky Sulphur Dell ballpark (with its 22-foot sloping right field) near Capitol Hill and the present day Farmer's Market. He played a vintage color film from 1942, when the Yankees visited town for an exhibition as the new season commenced, and showed us many of the illustrations from his book. Baseball isn't just a game, it's a time machine.
