MY TAKE ON THE PARK

Entrance to Greer Stadium, Nashville, Tn.

AFTER VISITING GREER STADIUM IN NASHVILLE DURING THE SUMMER OF 2006, I COULD ONLY THINK OF ONE REASON TO SEE THIS CLASSIC PARK. WELL, I HAVE ANOTHER. 2007 WILL BE THE LAST SEASON THE NASHVILLE SOUNDS WILL CALL HERSCHEL GREER STADIUM HOME.

THE MAIN REASON OF COURSE TO SEE A GAME AT GREER STADIUM IS OF COURSE THE SCOREBOARD. I HAVE NOT SEEN THE PLANS FOR THE SCOREBOARD IN THE NEW PARK BUT I DOUBT IT INCLUDES A 60 FOOT LONG AND 58 FOOT HIGH GUITAR
SCOREBOARD. ASIDE FROM THE GUITAR, GREER STADIUM IS AN OLDER PARK THAT SERVES ITS PURPOSE, IT PROVIDES FANS A PLACE TO SEE A GAME.

LOCATED OUTSIDE THE CITY SITS GREER STADIUM. UPON ARRIVING AT THE PARK, FREE PARKING AWAITS, ALWAYS A PLUS IN MY BOOK. THERE IS PLENTY OF PARKING BUT ON A FIREWORKS NIGHT WITH A FULL HOUSE IT MIGHT TAKE SOME TIME GETTING OUT.

UPON ENTERING THE STADIUM, THERE IS A WALKWAY WHERE YOU CAN FIND
CONCESSIONS OR AN ALCOHOL BRACELET. THE CONCESSION STANDS ALL ARE NAMED AFTER SOUNDS PLAYERS OF THE PAST, SOMETHING I REALLY LIKED ABOUT THE PLACE. THE AREA THOUGH IS DARK AND STUFFY, ONE OF THE FEATURES THAT THE NEW PARK DESIGN HAS ELIMINATED. THE SOUVENIR STORE IS LOCATED BEHIND THE UPPER LEVEL AND SEEMS TO HAVE EVERYTHING IN A STAND TYPE STORE.

AS FOR THE PARK, IT SERVES ITS PURPOSE. THE GAME HERE IS WHAT THE PARK WAS DESIGNED FOR AND THE GAME IS HANDLED WELL. THE SCOREBOARD IN LEFT IS HARD NOT TO LOOK AT, BUT IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU ANY REASON AT ALL TO LOOK AT IT. THE LINE SCORE RUNS ALONG THE NECK AND THE BALL / STRIKE / OUT
COUNT IS ON THE PEG HEAD. THE BATTER INFORMATION IS ON THE MAIN PART OF THE GUITAR ALONG WITH SOME ADVERTISEMENTS.

A TRIP TO NASHVILLE TO SEE THE SOUNDS IS A GREAT NIGHT OUT. THE GAMES ON SATURDAY START AT 6:00 SO YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO GET OVER TO THE GRAND OLE OPRY AND SEE THE SATURDAY NIGHT SHOW AT 9:30. DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS, I WOULD ADVISE TO SIT ON THE FIRST BASE SIDE, THE SUN SETS BEHIND FIRST SO YOU GET THE SHADE EARLIER. THE SHADE IS VERY IMPORTANT DOWN SOUTH IN JULY.
