A couple of area softball teams hit the field this week in a mid-week rivalry game. Middle Tennessee is hosting Tennessee State this Tuesday; first pitch is at 6 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for Wednesday evening but has been moved up due to weather. This is the 52nd meeting between these two programs and MTSU leads the all-time series record 43-8. In their first match-up last season, TSU earned the win over MTSU 7-4 in a hard-fought game in Nashville. Their second game of the season series which was set in Murfreesboro was canceled, so the Blue Raiders didn’t get a second crack at the Tigers. MTSU will have their chance this Tuesday as they host TSU at Blue Raider Field.
As the Nashville Sports scene grows and improves, opportunities arise giving birth to new organizations and avenues for the expansion of the sports landscaping in Nashville. Last night the Nashville Sports Council teamed up with the Nashville Soccer Club, the city’s latest addition.
