Opening Night at the Smokies

Tennessee Smokies vs. Mississippi Braves (Southern League)

Smokies Stadium-Kodak, TN:  This year Brian, Papa, and I decided to kick off the 2019 Minor League season in the Smoky Mountains for opening day.  We were staying at the tourist trap this is Gatlinburg, so it wasn’t much of a drive up to the quaint little town of Kodak, Tennessee.

This was our first trip to Smokies Stadium, and it was definitely one I’m glad we were able to come to.  The ballpark has some nice sightlines and scenery in the outfield.  And, of course, Brian had to get a pic with the Smokies mascot, Homer!

As for the game, it was a back-and-forth thriller.  Robel Garcia led the way for the Smokies on offence. He went 3-5 with 2 RBI’s.  Jared Young also added an RBI, scored two runs, and went 2-5.  On the mound, Wyatt Short earned the victory for Tennessee while Craig Brooks earned the save.

This was a great way to kick off our minor league season,  It was a fun game to watch with great company and great weather.  Would very much recommend a game here, and we’ll try to get in another game next time we’re in the area.
