Nashville Stars (baseball)
The Nashville Stars were a semi-pro Negro league baseball team in the late 1930s through the early 1950s. The Stars played in the minor league Negro Major League in 1942 and the Negro Southern League in 1951. They were located in Nashville, Tennessee, and played their home games at Sulphur Dell.
In 2019, an investment group, Music City Baseball LLC, announced plans to secure a possible Major League Baseball expansion franchise or lure an existing team to Nashville that would be called the Nashville Stars in honor of the city's Negro league teams.
