First Tennessee Park, Nashville

4.6
First Tennessee Park is a minor league baseball park in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. The home of the Triple-A Nashville Sounds of the Pacific Coast League (PCL), it opened on April 17, 2015, and can seat up to 10,000 people. It replaced the Sounds' former home, Herschel Greer Stadium, where the team played from its founding in 1978 until 2014.The park was built on the site of the former Sulphur Dell, a minor league ballpark in use from 1870 to 1963. It is located between Third and Fifth Avenues on the east and west (home plate, the pitcher's mound, and second base are directly in line with Fourth Avenue to the stadium's north and south), and between Junior Gilliam Way and Harrison Street on the north and south. It is near Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and is adjacent to the future location of a new Tennessee State Museum. The Nashville skyline can be seen from the stadium to the south.The design of the park incorporates Nashville's musical and baseball heritage and the use of imagery inspired by country music, Sulphur Dell, and Nashville's former baseball players and teams. Its most distinctive feature is its guitar-shaped scoreboard—a successor to the original guitar scoreboard at Greer Stadium. The ballpark's wide concourse wraps entirely around the stadium and provides 360-degree views of the field. Once the greenway section is completed, it will connect with two other greenways in the city.

  • This ball park is home to the Nashville Sounds, a AAA baseball team. There are a number of food options from the various food counters. With the number of food counters at the park, you don’t have to ...  more »
  • This ballpark is brilliant. Possibly the best scoreboard I've seen, in the shape of a guitar and a great atmosphere to match. It's minor league but its such great value for money. Inexpensive tickets,...  more »
  • This park is only 3 years old or so and it's awesome. The concourses are very wide and you can still see the field while standing in line at the concession stands. There's a bar and gathering place in...  more »

  • Family Faith night was a hit for our family. My children ages 3 and 12 loved all the activities offered and were given lots of freebies like a Nashville Sounds backpack, pens, and yo-yos. The cost for using the inflatables was very reasonable. Restrooms, food service areas, seating and areas were clean throughout. Great ball park!
  • Great place to catch a game and hangout. If you don't need a seat you can buy tickets at the box office for lawn/bar seating which are $9, I think. The bar has great Jack and Coke slushies. There are also a few activities to do there, like ping pong and even mini-golf, in case you go as a family and the kids are getting restless. Highly recommend, make sure you say hi to Booster, the mascot.
  • Awesome stadium. I couldn't believe the fan base the Sounds have here. I haven't been to a game since Greer Stadium, and was completely in awe. My family and I went on a faith and family night and had an amazing time. My handicap daughter was given the best accommodations without really even having to ask. Completely expected though with it being Nashville. Just another reason I'm proud to be a Tennessean.
  • Went for the first concert the stadium held. After waiting 30+ minutes to have my ticket scanned for entry, you can imagine my surprise that a $50 GA admission ticket meant you got to stand in the concession concourse. Anywhere you'd like... in the concession concourse! I chose to stand near a ketchup and mustard stand. The lights never dimmed, and the stage was like a speck in out-field. Even those with more expensive in-field seats could barely see the stage, and were leaving in droves. I actually felt bad for the band. Unless you were on the field, the vibe wasn't there. I hope many lessons we're learned by those running the show. I will certainly not return for a concert.
  • This is the best stadium I've been to. The Nashville Sounds games are always amazing. There's a kids area for the little ones full of games and physical activity play places, there's adult games, a bar, food vendors and event hosting. All this at a baseball game? It's like a state fair! Make sure you get one of their hotdogs, they're massive.

Where to stay in Nashville

Stay in downtown, midtown, the west end, or near Vanderbilt to be at the center of it all in Nashville. You'll find plenty of boutique hotels and major chains in all of these areas, which give you great access to the downtown music scene and beyond. While you can find a bit of everything in downtown Nashville, from larger hotels to apartment rentals, keep in mind that more affordable, and often quainter, options are located further from Broadway. Travelers looking to spend most of their time at the Grand Ole Opry should consider accommodations in the Opryland or Music Valley area near the airport.
