Schedule for Nashville tourney released
January 14, 2014By Brandon Froedge of Crawfordsville High School
The schedule for the 2014 Middle Tennesse Invitational has been released. The baseball tournament is hosted by Christ Presbyterian Academy and Sycamore High School.
The Crawfordsville Athenians will be playing in Nasvhille, after spending last Spring Break in Louisville, Kentucky. Coming off a 25-win season and falling a game short of reaching the 3A state championship game and Victory Field, the Athenians will once again use this early season opportunity to test their mettle against top-notch competition.
On Thursday, April 10, Crawfordsville opens with a game against Hume Fogg. They play again right away versus Montgomery Bell Academy, the defending big class runner-up and alma mater of former NL Cy Young winner, R.A. Dickey. On Friday, the Athenians are scheduled to face host Christ Presbyterian. Depending on results, the team will play in one of four games on Saturday.
During the trip, the team also hopes to catch a Vanderbilt University game. The preseason NCAA-ranked #9 Commodores play in Nashville and have a left-handed pitcher with the surname of Rice who hails from Crawfordsville, Indiana on their roster.
