Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds return home to Greer Stadium this Friday, August 10th, to open an eight-game homestand against the Salt Lake Bees (Angels affiliate) and Tacoma Rainiers (Mariners affiliate) of the PCL Pacific Conference Northern Division.

Highlighting the homestand’s worth of promotions will be three fireworks shows, the final two Trevecca Nazarene University FAITH NIGHTS® pregame concerts of the season, and “Double Plays for Down Syndrome Night” – a special evening for the Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee and the Pujols Family Foundation at the ballpark during which the Sounds will wear special blue and yellow pinstriped jerseys on the field.
