Clarksville, TN – The dream of having a chance to play in the major leagues could become reality this week for several Austin Peay State University (APSU) baseball players, with the 2019 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft running June 3rd through June 5th in Secaucus, NJ.
The APSU Govs have a long history in the draft — dating back to the Govs first draft selection in the 1972 draft, Tim Burns, who went in the second round — and this year’s 40-round draft should be no different.

Clarksville, TN – Two integral pieces of Austin Peay State University’s (APSU) early-century success on the diamond, a volleyball dynamo from the Left Coast and an all-conference football player from back in Austin Peay’s days in the Volunteer State Athletic Conference whose philanthropic reach has matched his talents on the gridiron will make up the four-person 2019 Austin Peay Athletics Hall of Fame induction class.

Washington, D.C. – A new study has found that dust, not spring warmth, controls the pace of spring snowmelt that feeds the headwaters of the Colorado River. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the amount of dust on the mountain snowpack controls how fast the Colorado Basin’s rivers rise in the spring regardless of air temperature, with more dust correlated with faster spring runoff and higher peak flows.
The finding is valuable for western water managers and advances our understanding of how freshwater resources, in the form of snow and ice, will respond to warming temperatures in the future.
Faith and Family Night, Bark in the Park, Mother’s Day Celebration Highlight Nine-Day Stretch
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds Baseball Club returns to First Tennessee Park tomorrow to begin a nine-day, eight-game homestand against a pair of Pacific Conference opponents.
The Sounds welcome the defending PCL Champion El Paso Chihuahuas – Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres – for a four-game series from May 6th-9th. After a team off day on Wednesday, May 10th, the Albuquerque Isotopes – Triple-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies – are in town for a four-game set from May 11th-14th.
Clarksville, TN – It’s easy to fly under the radar when you play on a team hell-bent on losing 100 games. The talented players tend to get the benefit of the doubt—Shelby Miller didn’t pitch perfectly in every one of those starts he was unable to win, just most of them, but you wouldn’t know that from listening to Chip and Joe—and the…less…talented guys bear the brunt of the blame (I can only imagine Fredi Gonzalez’s whole spiel to keep his job will be, “Whaddya want from me? I thought you were going to give me real ballplayers to coach.”)
Even so, I’m a little discouraged at Andrelton Simmons’ development.
(DEEEEEEP breaths, everybody. It’s not all bad, I promise. Andrelton Simmons is my favorite current Brave. Of course, he’s one of only like, three, that I recognize, but still, this is hard on me too.)
Aaron Brooks Takes No-Decision In Solid Debut
Nashville, TN – The Sounds fell victim to a late-inning surge on Tuesday night at First Tennessee Park and lost the series finale to the Chihuahuas, 9-4.
The Chihuahuas put up the game’s initial strike in the first to jump out to an early 1-0 lead. Alex Dickerson collected his seventh hit of the series, this one clearing the right field wall and landing amongst the crowd gathered in The Band Box. The solo shot was hit off Sounds starter Aaron Brooks, who was making his team debut.
Team Partnering With The Sports Fund To Aid Area Non-Profit Programs As Part Of “Play It Forward” Campaign
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds, in conjunction with The Sports Fund and the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, will host a sports equipment drive during games at First Tennessee Park from August 20th-22nd as part of the “Play It Forward” campaign.
The Sounds are encouraging fans to bring new or gently used sports equipment to deposit in collection bins at the ballpark gates.
Faith Night Concert and Girl Scout Night Highlight Sounds Five-Game Homestand With Cross-State Rival Redbirds
Nashville, TN – Beginning on Wednesday August 5th, the Nashville Sounds will commence a five-game homestand with cross-state rival Memphis (Triple-A St. Louis Cardinals). The Redbirds currently lead the Tennessee Lottery I-40 Cup Series, 6-5.
The Sounds have some exciting events coming up, including a Back-to-School Backpack giveaway, Girls Scout Night, Faith Night Concert and Fox 17 Friday Night Firework show.
He begins the season with the prohibitive favorite Los Angeles Dodgers as the starting third baseman, only he’s kind of average and some Mets castoff named Justin Turner starts playing out of his mind, so the Dodgers send him to Atlanta, which wouldn’t be awkward except that they did so right in the middle of a series against the Braves.
So he and his stogies and a half-dozen of his cars come to Atlanta and become sort of folk-hero-y; after all, the last time we saw him he was ruining the best chance of an extended playoff run during the Fredi Gonzalez era. But he shuffles Chris Johnson to the pine and delivers some nice moments while with the Bravos and hey, here’s another photo of him smoking a big cigar with the Stanley Cup because Juan Uribe rolls like a boss.
