Looking to get out of the house, enjoy the outdoors and take in a game? Baseball is back this summer and the First Horizon Park is currently hosting games for the Nashville Sounds. Here’s what you need to know!
Summertime means baseball season for many families. My husband and kids love the sounds and thrill of the ballpall, and it doesn’t even matter who is playing. They just want to take in a game and cheer along.
If you’ve never been to a ballgame in the Nashville area, the Music City is home to the Nashville Sounds. They are the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. The team plays at First Horizon Park, which is located on the site of the historic Sulphur Dell ballpark.
My family made a stop at this Nashville, Tennessee ballpark during our recent visit to the area and we were impressed with the team, the park and the friendliness of the staff. We even had a nearby usher photobomb when we were taking photos.
Our family has been to watch baseball at parks all over the country and the home of the Nashville Sounds is one of the cleanest and nicest parks we’ve been to. Designed well and compact, there isn’t a bad seat in the house, and our family loved some of the additional activities such as mini-golf that were available. It helped keep my teen and tween busy until game time. Be sure to watch for fun giveaways at select games. We loved the nice backbacks that were a giveaway at the game we attended.
While masks are not required at Nashville Sounds games, there are still a few COVID-19 procedures in place.
Like many others, the First Horizon Park in Nashville is currency cashless. The box office, concession stands and retail stores are all credit card payments only. If you come to the game with cash only, you can purchase pre-loaded $20 gift cards at Advanced Tickets located next to Guest Services near section 114. The gift cards can be used anywhere at First Horizon Park and can be used at any outside business that accepts gift cards.
Tickets for Nashville Sounds games can be purchased at the box office, although the ballpark strongly recommends that you purchase tickets in advance online. Digital tickets, delivered via Ticketmaster account manager, will be scanned at entry from guests’ mobile phones. While ticket prices do vary depending on the game and seating area, overall they are affordable when compared to other ballparks.
If you’ve never been to this ballpark before, one important thing to note is that they do have a clear bag policy for all events to help limit contact between security staff and guests. Attendees can bring one clear bag into the park– either a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or a 12" x 12" x 6" clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag – plus a small clutch/purse no larger than 4.5" x 6.5" in size. Exceptions will be made for medically necessary items and/or diaper bags after proper inspection and screening.
First Horizon Park, home of the Nashville Sounds is located at 19 Junior Gilliam Way, Nashville, TN 37219. For more information you can call (615) 690-HITS or visit the team’s page online here.
