After 37 years of baseball, the Nashville Sounds are set to leave Greer Stadium.

With the 2014 season coming to a close, fans and employees are getting a Last Cheer at Greer.

The final Sounds home game of the regular season is Wednesday, which could be the final game there.

But the Sounds are fighting for first place in the Pacific Coast League American Southern division.

If the Sounds make the playoffs for the first time since 2007, there would be at least one home game in the postseason.

The brand new First Tennessee Park is set to open in time for the 2015 season.

On Monday, season ticket holders got the opportunity to pick out seats for next year.

Eighteen-year season ticket holder Patti Zimmerman was among those.

“We were like 12-year-olds,” Zimmerman said. “We put our pins in and we were just thrilled.”

The team’s new $37 million ballpark near downtown Nashville is scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the 2015 season. It will also feature a guitar scoreboard similar to Greer’s.
