Early musings on the Sounds' next home

The politics and the money still need to be sorted out, but plenty of folks have been thinking for a good while about the future home of the Nashville Sounds. The Civic Design Center on Tuesday hosted a forum showcasing the work of University of Tennessee College of Architecture + Design graduate students who have been musing since the fall on how to integrate a potential Sounds stadium into Sulphur Dell or the North Gulch areas. The students also were asked to think of how multiple uses could in turn be built into the venue.

We hope to have more images from the event soon, but in the meantime, here's a taste of some of the designs Sushant Verma came up with. Want to go check out the designs in person? The Civic Design Center is displaying them all month.

Greer ranked 7th among minor league ball fields

Livability.com has ranked the home of the Nashville Sounds as the No. 7 best minor league baseball stadium in its look at the top 10 ballparks that are "full of charm and magnetism, making them worth a visit for baseball enthusiasts and curiosity seekers alike."

Ranking at the top of the list, available here, are Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi, Texas, and Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium in Kannapolis, N.C.

Here's the website's write up of Herschel Greer Stadium:

Herschel Greer Stadium, home of the Class AAA Nashville Sounds of the Pacific Coast League, is actually located on the grounds of Fort Negley, an American Civil War fortification in Nashville, TN.The stadium opened in 1978 and can seat 10,300 people, and is best recognized by a distinctive guitar-shaped scoreboard that displays the line score across the neck. Greer Stadium has been the site of eight no-hit games – including one perfect game – as well as a 24-inning game that tied the record for the longest game in PCL history.

(Of course, Livability.com may be just a bit biased, given that it's a subsidiary of Franklin, Tenn.-based Journal Communications.)
