the sounds games are OUT OF THIS WORLD – i recently attended a sweet nashville sounds game not expecting much. WOW
I WAS WRONG.
it was lots of fun, and the people there were allllll NICE. the mascots, concession sellers, players all did nice things to make me feel home.
one punk, mitch maier, kept messing up in the outfield and at bat, but everyone laughed and bonded at his badness. it was truely a family experience. troof
Stay away from Sluggers, baseball is fun with free parking – There is nothing like baseball on a warm summer night. My friends & I go to Sounds? games several times a season. This review is on Sluggers, the sports bar on the 4th floor. This used to be a great place to go at 5:30 when the gates opened to get dinner before the game that starts at 7pm. It used to be first come, first served and you could get in and out of there with no problem. That is no longer the case. Last night I stood in line outside the gates before the park opened. At 5:30 my friend & I went directly to Sluggers. We found all of the tables on the glass (the best seats) with reserved signs. The tall tables a couple of steps up from the glass were also reserved. That left only a few tables open for the early birds. Those seats & the bar stools filled up within 15 minutes of opening. The HUGE problem is this. The wait staff goes through the whole restaurant to take drink orders. They will NOT take food orders until everyone has at least one drink. While I am early and ready to order my drink & food as soon as I see a waitress, I am forced to wait. Then it takes 30-45 minutes to get my food. By that time I am wolfing it down because I want to get to my seat in the stadium before the National Anthem. Not only that, the people with the reserved seats can waltz in at any time and get their drink & food order taken immediately. There were several people who came in after us, ordered after us, but received their food before us. This poor service strategy was in effect last year as well. At one time Sluggers was a great place to start the evening. Now it is stressful and I will not spend my money or waste my time there.
The Sounds make their noise heard at Nashville's ballyard. – In Short
This venue was built in 1978 on land leased from the city in exchange for the Nashville Sounds baseball team bankrolling the original 6,500-seat facility. The stadium has since been expanded and seats 10,700 fans, which comes in handy on promotional nights throughout the long, hot summers. Greer is one of only a few U.S. stadiums that is privately owned and absolutely the only stadium in the country with a guitar-shaped scoreboard.
Great fun, but watch when you leave... – This was my first visit in several years. The seats were starting to look worn. The game was still very enjoyable. The food is more reasonably priced than most major league parks.
Watch out when leaving! We made a wrong turn and ended up in a very scary looking neighborhood. I got directions there but didn't bother to get directions back to my hotel.
America's Past Time – I love watching games at Greer Stadium. Cheap tickets, Lots of People, and Tons of fun!
Low cost entertainment – Greer has been home the to the Nashville Sounds for over 25 years. The park is serviceable but not really charming like many old-time minor league parks. Parking is accessible, but often times traffic will snarl trying to get to and from the stadium if there's a large crowd. Lately poor lighting has been an issue for the park. Overall, still the best game in town to take the family for an inexpensive sporting night. Sounds management seems to have plenty of extras to entertain when the game gets slow.
