Tennessee-Georgia All-Star Softball Classic Set For Tuesday At Frost Stadium

Sunday, June 12, 2022

The 24th annual Tennessee-Georgia All-Star Softball Classic will take place this Tuesday night (June 14) at Chattanooga's Frost Stadium.

The annual border battle will pit recent graduates from northwest Georgia against recent graduates from the metro-Chattanooga area. Admission is $10 at the gate for adults, $5 for students ages 6-12, while kids, ages five and under, are free.

Susan Crownover, who recently retired after a legendary career at GPS, will lead Team Tennessee, while Ringgold's Daniel Hackett will serve as head coach for Team Georgia for a second straight year.

Last June, in front of over 500 fans, Game 1 ended in a 7-7 tie before the Peach State took the nightcap, 5-3. Caroline Hemphill (Ringgold) took home the Stump Martin Most Valuable Player Award, named for the Classic's founder. Her four total RBIs tied an All-Star Classic record. Emma Minghini (Gordon Lee) earned the Chip Liner Georgia Player of the Game Award, while Ella Edgmon (Sequatchie County) collected the Clifford Kirk Tennessee Player of the Game Award.
Tennessee still leads the all-time series, 34-10-2.

A quartet of youth games will be played prior to the All-Star Classic. Those youth games will begin at 11 a.m., while the All-Star Classic will play its traditional seven-inning doubleheader starting at 6 p.m.

22 Questions And Concerns About A New $79.5 Million Lookouts Stadium

The proposal for the Lookouts stadium brings forth several questions that I have not gotten good answers yet from anyone. 1. If the 10 acres Gary Chazen is donating is worth $10,000,000, why doesn’t he and his partners just sell the 140 acres and go to the bank with over $100,000,000? 2. There has been over a billion dollars of new construction in downtown Chattanooga ... (click for more)

New Stadium Does Not Pass The Smell Test - And Response

I can't find any logical reasons that the new Lookout stadium is being placed where it is other than to think it's a combination of favoritism and eliminating an eyesore. All statistics point to an illogical decision coupled with questionable tax breaks/support. Lookouts average attendance in 2018 (all that I could quickly find) was 3,206 per game and ranked 74th among ... (click for more)
