The Nashville Sounds, a Triple A affiliate of Pittsburgh, play in Greer Stadium. The stadium opened in 1978 and seats 10,139. There are plans in the works to construct a new stadium in the downtown area. The temperature at the beginning of game one was 87 degrees and it dropped to 78 degrees by the end of the second game. The humidity was in the 90s for both games. Tonight we had another double-header game because of a rainout earlier in the week. The Sounds were playing the Sacramento Rivercats. The Sounds (at the top of their division) were not successful in either game tonight losing both games by scores of 4-2 and 5-0. The box scores were game 1 Rivercats R-4, H-8, E-0 and Sounds R-2, H-7, E-2; game 2 Rivercats R-5, H-9, E-1 and Sounds R-0, H-3, E-2. Probably the only high point for the Sounds was in the 6th inning when the 1-2-3 three outs started with balls hit to the pitcher who got assists on the first two and made the put-out on the third one. Field lines are RF & LF-327' and CF-400'. This is the coolest scoreboard we have seen, shaped like a guitar. Ozzie is the mascot. Kids get to run the bases after every home game. General admission is bleacher seating with no backs down first baseline. The Sounds along with several other sponsors support an eight-week reading program in area schools. Students set a goal to read a certain number of pages or books in a two-week period. For each period that they are successful they get to advance around the bases--1st period to 1st base, 2nd period to 2nd base and so forth. Each time they make a base they get a reward. If they are successful and reach their goal all four weeks they have a home run and a free ticket to the baseball game, which was tonight. There was a parade of all the home run readers that reached completely around the field, see picture. One group came 2 hours from Kentucky on four buses and was sitting in the section next to us. The attendance was 8,471. Sluggers Cafe is located above the pressbox and has fancier sandwich food than what is found in the regular concession area. There is a grill area in the concession area that has grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. 2005 affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers.
