April 2020 Newsletter
We want to begin this newsletter by recognizing that March was quite a month for Nashville and the entire state of Tennessee. First was the tornado that left families, businesses, schools and entire communities displaced. Nashvillians came together to offer support and start the rebuilding process during a time of need. Then came the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the state’s economy and local workforce as well as the uncertainty that comes with each day. Once again, Nashvillians stepped up, listened to the advice of medical and state officials and sheltering-in-place efforts should help slow the progress of this virus. The Nashville Stars are proud to be a part of the Nashville community. Now, more than ever, we are committed to this community and to our mission of bringing MLB to Nashville. The sun will shine again, and we will hear our fans cheer at the crack of the bat, for the love of the game.

Speaking of that, we have some really exciting updates for you. 

Baseball is the first organized sport ever played in Nashville, a sense of pride for the Nashville Stars. Baseball is in our DNA. The Stars are deeply rooted in Nashville’s rich baseball history going back to 1860. Sulphur Dell was a cornerstone for all of baseball including the Negro Leagues. The Stars were one of the many teams that were based in Nashville. The Negro Leagues introduced us to some of MLB’s greatest: Satchel Page, Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and many more. This history becomes the inspiration and foundation for the future of baseball in Music City. The Nashville Stars will bring the MLB experience to Nashville, building on our focus of baseball, families, community and entertainment.

Using historic photos, we have developed a vintage brand identity for the Nashville Stars. We are honored to be able to bring the history of the Negro Leagues to life through these designs.

To further illustrate the history of the Nashville Stars and of baseball in Music City, we have launched a new video series on social media. Below is the first video that introduces the Nashville Stars and our new vintage brand identity.

The Nashville Stars are committed to the city of Nashville and the state of Tennessee. The Stars are more than a baseball team – they are proactive members of the community. And as such, we are committed to making a difference. One of the most important ways to make a difference is through education. ‘Teaching is the one profession that creates all other professions.’ —Unknown

As we have all seen recently, heroes don’t always wear capes. Our educators and all of those who serve our community are unsung heroes. From the medical professionals on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, to those keeping the grocery stores stocked and running; from the delivery drivers who deliver packages and supplies, to the sanitation engineer collecting your trash each week; from those offering childcare services so parents can continue to perform essential jobs, to the volunteers helping with tornado recovery; these are all every day heroes in our society. We will be honoring these “All-Stars” throughout the season to thank them for the vital role they play in our community. 

The Nashville Stars are currently working with Empowerment Pursuit on achieving their mission “empowering Human Performance and uplifting the Nashville community through sports, education, and community development.”
On March 6th, The Nashville Stars hosted an night of music at the Bluebird Cafe benefitting Empowerment Pursuit. Check out the recap video below!

On the night of March 2 and into the morning of March 3, 2020, a tornado devastated Nashville and the surrounding communities. The Nashville Stars are supporting the recovery efforts by donating proceeds from bat sales to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Support Fund. Click below to get yours!
