The Nashville Sounds Baseball Club today announced its 2019 home schedule at First Tennessee Park, in conjunction with the Pacific Coast League. Opening Day is scheduled for Thursday, April 4 when the Sounds host the Iowa Cubs to begin the 2019 campaign. It's the second time in five years at First Tennessee Park that Nashville opens its season at home (also in 2016).
The home opener against the Cubs is the beginning of a season-opening five-game homestand at First Tennessee Park.
Notable home games during the 2019 season include Easter Sunday on April 21, Memorial Day on Monday, May 27, Father's Day on Sunday, June 16 and Labor Day on Monday, September 2.
"We're excited to announce our 2019 home schedule at First Tennessee Park - the best ballpark in Minor League Baseball," said Sounds General Manager Adam Nuse. "Over two million fans have packed the ballpark in its first four years and we look to continue the trend in 2019."
First Tennessee Park plays host to 11 different homestands to fill the 70-game 2019 home schedule. The longest homestand of the season is a 13-gamer from May 21 to June 2 when the Sounds welcome the Memphis Redbirds, Round Rock Express and New Orleans Baby Cakes.
35 weekend dates fill the 2019 home slate, including 11 Friday games, 12 Saturday dates and 12 Sunday games.
As part of the 2019 Pacific Coast League realignment, the Sounds move to the American Conference's Northern Division. Along with Nashville, the division will consist of the Iowa Cubs, Omaha Storm Chasers and Memphis Redbirds. The Sounds play each team 16 times.
The full 2019 schedule complete with game times and all road games will be released in Fall.
