Thousands of fans filled Greer Stadium Wednesday night for the Nashville Sounds’ last regular season home game.
It was standing room only in the venue, which seats 10,300.
The Sounds are fighting for first place in the Pacific Coast League American Southern division.
If they make the playoffs for the first time since 2007, there would be at least one home game in the postseason.
Once the season is over, the team will move to the new First Tennessee Park.
Many fans, like Joe Bonsall of Oak Ridge Boys, said they are sad to see the Sounds leave Greer Stadium.
“It’s been a great history of baseball in Nashville. We’re excited about the new stadium and I have to admit, with all the memories here, I’m a little sad to see it go.”
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.
