[This report was filed by Randy Young from Chattanooga, TN. He attended the Nashville event.]
Reporting from the not-so-sunny and not-so-warm south on the Reds Caravan first ever visit to Tennessee. My family (some more reluctantly than others) got up early, hopped into our vehicle and drove the 2 ½ hours from Chattanooga to the mall [...]

Mark Sheldon’s story at the Reds site is the place to start. Regarding the rest of the coaches:
