First Tennessee Park

First Tennessee Park is the home of the AAA Nashville Sounds. Opened April 17, 2015, the ballpark can seat up to 10,000 people. 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. The Nashville skyline can be seen from the stadium to the south.

Designed with Design Architect Populous, The design of the park incorporates Nashville’s heritage and the use of imagery inspired by 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.
