"We're already looking forward to and planning an exciting 2020 season for the best fans in Minor League Baseball," said Sounds General Manager Adam Nuse. "We can't wait to showcase the new amenities of First Horizon Park in year two of our affiliation with the Texas Rangers."
Following the season-opening five-game homestand, the Sounds travel to Oklahoma City and Wichita, Kan. for a seven-game road trip. The Dodgers welcome the Sounds for their 2020 Opening Day on Tuesday, April 14 as part of a three-game set. The newest franchise in the Pacific Coast League is the Wichita Wind Surge, the Triple-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins relocated from New Orleans. The Sounds fly into Wichita for a four-game series from April 17-20.
