Nashville, TN — The Nashville Sounds return home to historic Greer Stadium this Saturday, June 26th, to open a seven-game homestand against the PCL Southern Division’s Round Rock Express (Astros affiliate) and New Orleans Zephyrs (Marlins affiliate).

The largest and longest-running pre-game traveling baseball celebration, the Principal Financial Group Family Fun Fest and Minor League Baseball Museum, will land at Greer at 3:35pm on Sunday. The event features over 20 free midway-style attractions and activities next to the ballpark including batting cages, radar gun pitching challenges, super slides, the Great Clips Mobile Video Game Arcade, and much more!

Following a PCL-wide off day on Wednesday, the Sounds welcome the New Orleans Zephyrs to Music City for Taco Bell Throwback Thursday.

The popular Famous San Diego Chicken also makes his first stop at Greer Stadium in six years on Thursday. The Chicken is the jester among the jerseys. He is what everyone wants him to be, prancing in a spiritual space on a creative odyssey. Or to put it simply, he plays the class clown for all those who wish they never grew up. First pitch is 7:05pm and gates open at 5:35pm.

Nashville’s second game with the Zephyrs begins at 7:05pm on Friday. With Firestone Friday Fireworks on tap after the game, it is another great night to come out to the ballpark. Gates open at 5:35pm.

Saturday’s 6:35pm homestand finale with New Orleans ends with a bang, as postgame fireworks follow the action on the field for the second of back-to-back fireworks nights. Gates open at 5:35pm.

Following the homestand, Nashville will open an eight-game road trip against the Oklahoma City RedHawks and division-rival Memphis Redbirds before the three-day Triple-A All-Star break in mid-July.

Individual and season tickets, as well as group packages, are currently on sale. Call (615) 690-HITS ext. 2 or visit the Sounds’ website at www.nashvillesounds.com to order or for more information.
