The Nashville Sounds lost to the New Orleans Zephyrs, 4-3, in front of 6,373 fans on Friday night at historic Greer Stadium in the second game of a three-game series- and we saw the whole thing! What a fun time! I totally suggest this as a great, fun family outing.
It didn't matter that the Sounds lost, and not just because I am from New Orleans too, but because the whole experience was so fun! They do a great job at keeping the kids and mildly interested sports fans (like myself) entertained! They had some fun throwing out coupons to the crowd, singing songs, and involving people from the crowds in various games for prizes during the breaks. The players threw out balls on occasion and of course, the concession men entertained with their various calls! We all loved it. My husband even caught a baseball!
Then when the game was over, the fun continued! We stayed for the fabulous firework show and then my kids got to run the bases! Sierra wanted to do it again! I wish I had remembered to whip out the camera for that but I was so caught up watching that I didn't think of it until too late!
Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd;
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win, it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game.
Something else fun to do with kids- Make Rolled Paper Beads, Make a Bird Feeder, Explore Creeks and Ponds with Kids
