I won tickets to any Nashville Sounds game as part of my haiku contest prize package. J and I decided to take an out-of-towner to the see our local minor league team, a triple-A afilliate of the Brewers.
Greer stadium opened in '78. It feels old and rundown, although it's seen some minor renovations in recent years. Compared to the major league parks I visited this summer, it felt (and very much is) tiny. One very cool thing about the stadium is the guitar-shaped scoreboard, which was added in the 90s. It is quite unique.
The night we were there, a Minnie Pearl look-alike, entertained the crowd with a distinctive "howdy" and Grand Ole Opry trivia. It was very Nashville, perfect for our out-of-town guest.
