One of the best sounds of springtime is the crack of the bat during a Nashville Sounds baseball game. There are 70 home games on tap this year — the first one is Thursday, April 4 at 6:35 p.m. against the Iowa Cubs. The Sounds host the Cubs each night through Monday, April 8 with fireworks and special giveaways during opening weekend.

THEMED WEEKENDS

Special themed weekends kick off Friday, May 3 with Nashville’s participation in Minor League Baseball’s Copa de la Diversión (Fun Cup) event to connect with Nashville’s Latino population. The first 2,000 fans on Sunday, May 5 will get a free Sugar Skull Bobblehead.

Additional themed weekends include Star Wars (May 31 - June 1), Paradise at the Park (July 19 - 20) and Woodstock 50th Anniversary Tribute (Aug. 16 - 17). Star Wars weekend includes a lightsaber giveaway on May 31 (first 2,500 fans), and June 1 includes character appearances.
