FROM COMMODORE HISTORY CORNER: Grantland Rice and early Nashville baseball

Grantland Rice was born in Murfreesboro, Tenn., on Nov. 1, 1880. He became a legend and a pioneer in sports writing journalism developing an art of language and poetry into the profession he dearly loved.

By the time he grew into a teenager, Rice was living in Nashville on Vaughn Pike. Later, the family moved into a larger house on Broad St. (now 10th Ave.), where he played games with the neighborhood kids.

Rice found his way to Vanderbilt University in the fall of 1897.
