The new owners of the Nashville Sounds (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) are spending $1.5 million on Greer Stadium, but that’s just a drop in the bucket.
Frank Ward and crew came in as the new owners of the Sounds during the offseason and promised to take a more positive approach to running the team. While a new ballpark is still a long-term goal for them, making Greer Stadium a better place to watch a game — and a better place to play a game, as parent Milwaukee has complained about the condition of the facility — is a goal that must be addressed now.
The improvements this season have to do with restrooms and changes dictated by the Americans with Disabilities Act. They were part of a five-year lease for the ballpark signed after Ward’s group took control of the Sounds.
