NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Sounds, in conjunction with several Metro Nashville departments, community partners, and the Tennessee Titans, have collaborated on a Public Investment Plan (PIP) to purchase two mobile lactation units which will be used at Sounds games, Titans games and events, and other Metro events beginning in late August.

The groups will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the pods prior to the Sounds' game on Tuesday, August 29 at First Tennessee Park. Speakers from the Mayor's Office, Metro Public Health Department, and Metro Sports Authority will participate in the program.

This event is open to the public but they must purchase a Sounds ticket, as the pod is located on the concourse of First Tennessee Park.
