Sounds Kick Off Final Season At Greer Stadium
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Nashville Sounds hosted their home opener Friday night kicking off their final season at Greer Stadium.
The rain did not keep fans away from the first pitch with the Omaha Storm Chasers. Houston Greer, the grandson of the stadium's namesake Herschel Greer, threw out the season's ceremonial first pitch and said he grandfather would be happy about the move to a new ballpark.
" I think he would love it! I think -- he would absolutely love downtown now with the arena, with the Titans playing -- and with Sulphur Dell coming back, he would absolutely love it," said Greer.
Greer Stadium has been home Nashville baseball since 1978.
