The Nashville Sounds Baseball Club is proud to announce an expansion of its "Hometown Hero" program presented by Puckett's. At all Saturday and Sunday games at First Tennessee Park in 2018, the Sounds and Puckett's will honor active members of the armed forces, veterans, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers and firefighters.
Selected heroes will receive complimentary tickets to a Sounds game, a $50 Puckett's gift card and swag. Additionally, the hero will be recognized on the iconic guitar scoreboard during a special in-between inning feature.
Nominations for heroes are now being accepted at www.nashvillesounds.com. All nominees must be, or have been, a paramedic, emergency medical technician, police officer, firefighter, or a member of the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard.
The Sounds offer military family ticket discounts for every Sunday-Wednesday game at First Tennessee Park. A $2 discount on single-game ticket prices is available for any Reserved section seat - based on availability. The offer is valid for up to four tickets per government-issued military I.D. presented at the Sounds Ticket Office.
Additionally, the Sounds salute the troops every Sunday by wearing special military jerseys.
The 2018 season will be the Sounds' 41st in franchise history and fourth as the Oakland Athletics' top affiliate. Opening Day is set for Thursday, April 5 when the Sounds begin the season in New Orleans. Opening Night at First Tennessee Park is scheduled for Tuesday, April 10 when the Sounds host the Iowa Cubs at 6:35 p.m. Season ticket memberships are available now by calling (615) 690-4487 or by visiting www.nashvillesounds.com.
