The John P. Holt Brentwood Library will head to the Ravenswood Mansion at Smith Park later this month to present a program called The History of Sports in Brentwood.
The free program will be from 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 24 at the mansion, 1825 Wilson Pike, Brentwood, TN 37027.
Registration is requested for the program, as the City of Brentwood’s Historical Commission looks at sports through the years in the city. A panel discussion will be held at Smith Park on the back porch of the mansion prior to the Brentwood Travellers-Franklin Farriers Vintage Base Ball game at 2:30 p.m. (The first match, featuring the Nashville Maroons and the East Nashville Phoenix, begins at noon.)
Attendees are asked to wear their best old-fashioned sports apparel and win a chance to throw out the first pitch at the 2:30 p.m. vintage baseball game.
Guest panelists will include a member of the Brentwood based Vintage Baseball team, YMCA soccer representative, a former Brentwood High Coach who presently works with Brentwood Parks and other star athletes and coaches to be announced.
This event is one leading up to the 50th Anniversary Celebration for the City of Brentwood. Community members are invited to seminars to learn more about Brentwood and its past.
