Barton Mallow, one of the construction companies on First Tennessee Park, where the Nashville Sounds play home baseball games, tells us about some of the architectural features of the stadium and its surrounding park:
With Nashville known “Music City”, the original ballpark had a guitar shaped scoreboard since 1993. An updated and easier to maintain scoreboard with latest state of the art graphics, statistics, animation and video continues that tradition.
One of our major challenges at First Tennessee Park was to design and construct a Wet Well System to collect and discharge seating bowl runoff, field irrigation water, and major storm water overflow. FTP sits approximately 3 blocks from the edge of the Cumberland River and the Playing Field elevation is 10’0” below the 100 year flood plain.
