At noon we were finished at the Chickamauga National Military Park and it was time to roll back into Tennessee and head toward Knoxville. Our drive would take about 2.5 hours. At 3 PM we checked in at the Hampton Inn & Suites adjacent to the ballpark of the Tennessee Smokies, in Kodak, Tennessee. We had a 6:15 PM ballgame to attend, so we had 3 hours to relax in our room before game time.
At 6 PM we stepped out of our motel and walked next door to the ballpark to attend the Tennessee Smokies game. The Smokies hosted the Jacksonville Suns in a class AA Southern League game.
The final score of tonight’s game was Tennessee 10, Jacksonville 8. Box Score
In the morning, we’ll depart Tennessee and begin our visit to North Carolina.
