Last week, the Nashville Sounds neared a completion on the rehab of the guitar scoreboard at First Horizon Park, the home stadium of the Sounds.
Construction crews installed the “First Horizon Park” letters on the scoreboard and are continuing the final work on the backing of the guitar. The scoreboard is expected to be fully functional early this week, weather permitting.
“Nashville coming together to rebuild after the tornadoes is a reminder of how special our city is,” First Horizon Bank’s Middle Tennessee region president Carol Yochem said in a statement. “We’re proud to have the First Horizon name on a ballpark that’s beloved by the community and hope we can all enjoy watching the Nashville Sounds play again soon.”
The scoreboard was reported to have suffered minor damage from the tornado that swept through Germantown in early March.
No games have been played at the stadium as Minor League Baseball has yet to announce a return-to-play date with the season temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association have been in negotiations about when the league can begin its season, which would subsequently mean that MiLB teams could begin their seasons as well.
The Sounds have still engaged with their fans during the temporary hiatus, including their “Safe and Sounds at Home” initiative that began in April. It was an effort to make fans feel as if they were attending games at First Horizon Park through virtual simulations of games in the MLB the Show video game.
