I so appreciate the renewed fan interest in baseball; every day I was here I had the fans in mind – especially the children and families.”“Baseball is sometimes a season by season sport for players, as we all know; and sometimes it is season by season for members of the front office as well. Even when there’s no season. For the most part, I was signed for one year to turn the franchise around, and I made good on my promise. The current global climate plays a factor into my decision too, it’s time for me to return home.”“On January 22nd, over 3 million people saw the name “Jamestown NY” and “Chautauqua County” hit their newsfeeds when the team relaunched the brand at Jamestown Community College. #SkunkJunk merchandise has outsold the last five total years of the prior grape logo, and many more millions of impressions have been made since the relaunch. Excitement has been generated with everything from merchandise specials, to a fundraiser for the St. Susan’s Center.”“We made Politico. That says it all. A collegiate team just crushing it. We had so many local businesses like Ecklof Bakery who got so excited about the brand – Chad just went to another level! Plus, the folks at Forte making an Oreo-skunk drink. We had fans sending in pictures of themselves wearing their #SkunkJunk. We’ve got great sponsors in PA and western New York who believed what I was talking about. It’s an easy sell when you and the client are both passionate about revitalizing Jamestown baseball and bringing it to another level.”“The ‘Tarp Skunks’ brand is a gift to Jamestown. It is so baseball-universal, and the groundwork is laid for the management group to continue to do something special with it. It requires serious work and attention to sustain. I remember late nights in the office, 2 or 3 in the morning, drawing the uniforms and caps and researching popular MiLB designs for apparel, preparing huge orders of merchandise. I remember meeting with Brandiose in San Diego to shoot ideas around, and working with Randy at the Jock Shop weeks before release to put together a wide-ranging first line of items. Some of this experience was really fun and exciting,” says Fanning.“There were obviously challenges, but I always felt like I could overcome anything. Now, it’s up to the Board of Directors to maintain that momentum and continue the positive trend, the goal was to give Jamestown something it never had before. Here it is. I wish them luck.”“I cannot leave without thanking some of the wonderful people I met: Randy Anderson at the CSHOF was helping with prospecting right from the start; Mayor Eddie Sundquist – a breath of fresh air to Jamestown, he had my back the whole time; my Assistant, Kyle Hammond, worked tirelessly at his first ever sports job and is a huge part of the success; Greg Peterson was always there for me too. George Sisson at JCC always provided a great dose of reality in all of our meetings. Randy Marsh and the guys at the Jock Shop are co-builders of this brand. And of course, the golden era is still represented through the knowledge, trustworthiness, and integrity of Russ Diethrick AKA Mr. Baseball.”

Knoxville, Tennessee has long been known (and winning as Top Town 2015 in our magazine) as a fantastic base camp for exploring the nearby wilds of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area, the Obed Wild and Scenic River, and the Cumberland Plateau. However in 2016, this rapidly evolving city of 183,000 plus—home to the University of Tennessee—has more possibilities for outdoor adventures within its city limits than could ever be imagined. Last year the city crushed nation-wide competition to win a $100,000 grant from Bell Helmets which resulted in the construction of the Devil’s Racetrack, a wild and burly downhill gravity trail within the city limits that everyone won’t stop talking about. And with solid year-round work in land conservation and recreation promotion from local entities such as the Legacy Parks Foundation, Knoxville is fast becoming one of the hottest outdoor cities on the east coast.When you arrive:As soon as you pull into town be sure to go into the Visit Knoxville visitor center downtown (free parking) and pick up maps, information, merchandise, and more. This place and its staff are a wealth of knowledge for the trails and outdoor opportunities all over the city. If you show up to the center during the lunch hour Monday-Saturday, you will even catch a free bluegrass or Americana show courtesy of the WDVX Blue Plate special.Also be sure to go by and pay a visit to the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center. (I mean really…how many cities can say they have their own adventure center?) Situated on Volunteer Landing in the heart of downtown along the shores of the Tennessee River, this operation supported by the Legacy Parks Foundation is another essential hub of information and resources. Maps, clinics, bike/canoe/SUP rentals and more will assure that you never have a lack of outdoor pursuits at your fingertips while you’re in town.Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center: Photo courtesy of Legacy Parks FoundationDay One Adventures:Explore the South Loop Trail in the Urban WildernessSituated across the river and only 10 minutes from downtown, the Urban Wilderness is one of the crown jewels of today’s thriving outdoor scene in Knoxville. Consisting of 1,000 acres, 5 parks, and 42 miles of trails, this interconnected system of mostly single-track trails is a hotbed for running, hiking, and biking. The Main Loop of the Corridor is a 12.5 mile route that connects all of the various parks and their systems. A couple of must-see areas of the loop include the Hastie Natural Area which offers a lot for mountain bikers and trail runners and Mead’s Quarry with its beautiful lake where you can even rent bikes, boats, and stand up paddleboards from a seasonal booth by the trusted professionals at River Sports Outfitters. You could easily spend all 48 hours of your Knoxville time just playing in the Urban Wilderness.Trail running in Hastie Natural Area of the Urban Wilderness: photo courtesy of Legacy Parks FoundationClimb through the treetops at Ijams Nature CenterThe Ijams Nature Center is a beautiful and educational 300-acre preserve that falls within the Urban Wilderness. Complete with trails, indoor and outdoor play spaces, and a wide variety of educational exhibits, Ijams has long been a favorite area for families living in and visiting Knoxville. Recently, exciting new offerings have emerged with the opening of a new challenge park and zipline/canopy tour experience from Asheville-based Navitat.Boardwalk along the preserve at Ijams Nature Center: photo courtesy of Outdoor Knoxville Day Two Adventures:Take the plunge at Ft. Dickerson ParkHow about waking up to a morning dip within a deep blue lake set amidst rugged sheer cliffs? The Ft. Dickerson quarry is a perfect way to start your day with a location only minutes from downtown and the UT campus. There are even a few trails here along the bluffs to get in a short morning leg-stretcher.Fort Dickerson Quarry : photo courtesy of Legacy Parks FoundationPaddling, fishing, and birding at Seven Islands Wildlife RefugeAbout 20 minutes out of downtown, the Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge is a paddler’s haven. Easy access to the French Broad River immediately places you on one of the oldest rivers in the world and one of its most beautiful stretches along its 218-mile course. More than 50 species of fish call this river home and the surrounding 360-acre park is Tennessee’s first birding park, complete with over 8-miles of trails and 180 species of birds. Before leaving town to explore this park, be sure to seek out fishing beta and any tips on pursuing the river’s smallmouth bass from the good folks at 3 Rivers Angler.Fishing the French Broad near Seven Islands: photo courtesy of Outdoor KnoxvilleHike the tallest peak in the countyHouse Mountain stands prominently in a 500-acre natural area riddled with vertical bluffs, rock houses, huge boulders, and craggy overlooks that provide magnificent views of the Cumberland Mountains, the Unaka range, the Smokies, and downtown Knoxville. This preserve, with nearly 6 miles of trails spanning the highest mountain in Knox County, is less than 30 minutes from downtown. Be ready for a good workout as a number of the trails are relatively steep. Before leaving for your hike, check out either of the two outposts of Blue Ridge Mountain Sports in Knoxville for all of your gear, apparel and information needs.Layers of mountains on show from House Mountain: photo courtesy of Outdoor KnoxvilleFood:Knoxville’s dining scene is very impressive and you will find plenty for every taste and every budget. Just a few of our favorites are listed below:Stock and Barrel – An award-winning yet casual farm to table concept supporting regional food producers and featuring some of the most delicious and innovative burgers you will ever eat along with an extensive bourbon list. What’s not to love?Sustenance from Stock and Barrel: photo courtesy of Stock and BarrelThe Tomato Head – Located in the beautiful and bustling Market Square (along with Stock and Barrel), The Tomato Head is as much of a community institution as it is a fantastic restaurant. This place never disappoints with fresh ingredients that go into pizzas, sandwiches, salads, burritos, and much more.Knox Mason – “Contemporary Southern and hyper-local” is the key mantra here and this exquisite dining experience is not to be missed. Chef and owner Matt Gallagher spent years in the kitchen at Tenessee’s legendarily luxe Blackberry Farm. Recently Gallagher also opened Emilia, a much-acclaimed Italian restaurant in the buzzy Market Square area of downtown Knoxville.Knox Mason: Photo Courtesy of Kristin LunaJ.C. Holdway – Joseph Linn , Knoxville native and Tennessee’s first James Beard awarded chef, has opened this stylish new restaurant to rave reviews. Named after an uncle, J.C.

Great vegetarian and gluten-free options here also. Cycle the city greenways and enjoy a locally loved beer gardenThe greenway system is truly impressive here with over 65 miles of trails spanning the city. To cap off your first big day of adventure, take a spin or a run from the Outdoor Adventure Center alongside the Tennessee River on the Neyland Greenway to the UT Gardens.

But we wanted to save you some work with these recommendations:K Brew – Start your morning the right way at this shrine to the coffee bean. This team knows their stuff and they serve up one of the best pour-overs in town.Morning fuel from K Brew: photo courtesy of K BrewAlliance Brewing Company – Located very close to Ijams Nature Center and the Urban Wilderness trails, Alliance serves as the perfect post-adventure base to catch up with friends, share stories from the trail, and enjoy the brewery’s unique and traditional craft beers.Suttree’s High Gravity Tavern –Named for a classic novel by native son Cormac McCarthy, Suttree’s focuses on craft beer with a specialty in high-gravity selections. This place is a neighborhood favorite.The Peter Kern Library – A VERY cool speakeasy inside The Oliver boutique hotel. Enter from an alley or an unmarked sliding door inside the hotel lobby. Think mahogany, a fireplace, books, and superior cocktails.The Peter Kern Library: photo courtesy of Kristin LunaThe Tennessee Theatre and The Bijou Theatre – Both of these historic and beautifully restored theaters situated in the heart of downtown are must-visit locales-to check out for concerts and performances by national acts. Knoxville-based A.C. Entertainment (known for the creation of such grand festivals as Bonnaroo and Forecastle) buys and books the talent for both of these venues if that tells you anything.The Mill and Mine – Speaking of AC Entertainment, new for 2016 is the arrival of this state of the art 20,000+ sq ft music venue in downtown opened in part by AC himself (music and entertainment booking legend Ashley Capps). This amazing space has already seen acts such as Band of Horses and the Black Lillies and as of this writing…Lucero, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, and many more will be taking the stage there soon.Lodging:Visit Knoxville is the site to research for all of your best options on where you are going to lay your head after all of your city adventures. There is a multitude of choices matching all wallets, but here are two fun ones on opposite ends of the spectrum:Oliver Hotel – Super swank yet artsy and unique boutique hotel situated right off of Market Square in the heart of downtown. You will find the aforementioned Peter Kern Library here as well as some of the best access to all things mentioned in this guide.The Oliver Hotel: photo courtesy of Kristin LunaLily Pad Campground on the Obed – Although it is 45 minutes from downtown, we would be remiss if we did not mention one of the coolest and friendliest campgrounds around. The Lily Pad is a legendary location situated within the heart of a climbing mecca, complete with fire pits, corn hole, and a community general store inside a cabin that operates on the honor system!One Event Not to Miss:Rhythm and Blooms – Held every April, this is an explosive and understated music festival. Rhythm and Blooms has hosted acts such as Drive By Truckers, The Decemberists, The Apache Relay, JD McPherson, Delta Spirit, Langhorne Slim, local rockers The Dirty Guv’nahs, and many more.Native Knowledge:“What I love about Knoxville is that I have found that I actually like staying around town on the weekends every bit as much as traveling somewhere else. I have everything I need here. The biggest problem usually is deciding what to do! We have a full host of outdoor activities within easy reach like fly fishing, mountain biking, trail running, hiking, and camping. But what rounds out Knoxville as a fun place to be is the live music, great bars, and the really easy-going local folks.” – Knoxville resident and outdoor wild man Joe StalerCheck out our short Top Towns 2015 video on Knoxville below:More 48 Hours:
