Nashville Sounds vs. Omaha Storm Chasers (Pacific Coast League)

First Tennessee Park-Nashville, TN:  Our first time here in Nashville, and I can honestly say this ballpark is amazing.  That being said, it is also very expensive.  This is probably the most money we’ve ever laid down for minor league tickets, and you could probably get yourself major league tickets similar to these prices. That being said, we didn’t let that ruin our experience.  In fact, Sounds mascot Booster was waiting for us as we entered the gate.

My dad loves the seats in the upper level, so that’s where we went and had a great view.  The sight lines are great in Nashville, and that scoreboard is amazing!

He had time to explore the park more before the game, and the outfield concourse definitely has some unique features.  There is a full bar out there with couches, chairs, and even a pool table. There is also a full miniature golf course out there, too.  I’m sure we can debate whether all of this is necessary for a ballpark, but one thing is for certain, they put a lot of money into this ballpark.

We settled into the game, and the Sounds were running on all cylinders this night.  Nashville was led offensively by Joey Wendle, who went 4-5 with two RBI’s and three runs scored.  Also helping out was Chris Parmelee who went a perfect 3-3 while driving in and scoring a run.  Ryan LaMarre also knocked home three runs going 1-4.

And I can’t forget the country music stars race, where George Jones beat Johnny Cash and Reba McIntyre:

On the hill for Nashville was Daniel Mengden.  He pitched seven near perfect innings, giving up no runs on only three hits while striking out five. Final: Sounds 10, Storm Chasers 0.

This was an interesting trip to Nashville, and I wish we would have had time to check out more of the town, as there is so much to see and do. First Tennessee Park comes pretty close to a Major League experience, and that can be both good and bad.  I’m sure we’ll be making another trip down here for a game, though.  I’ll leave off with a little video I shot toward the end of the game:

Home Field: Werner Park 

Location: Omaha, Nebraska

League: Pacific Coast League

Fun Facts: The former Omaha Royals decided to change their name while moving into the new state of the art Werner Park in 2011. The team held a contest, and the Storm Chasers were the winners. When I first saw the name and logo…I was like..you gotta be kidding me. As I thought about it, though, this is what the Minors is all about. It’s a fun original name that is significant to the region and city it’s from. Good luck to the Storm Chasers this next season…may your t-shirt sales go through the roof.
