This was actually the second time we have been to Nashville to see Memphis play. Our first trip was back in 2014, the last year the Sounds play at Herschel Greer Stadium. The following year they moved into First Tennessee Park. First Tennessee is one of the nicest stadiums I have been to. The inside was very clean and well maintained. One of the old features from Herschel Greer was used again.
Of course we tried to get some autographs from the Redbirds. This stadium was not ideal for graphing the visiting team as the players come out from the third base dugout and walk to the first base dugout. My son and I stayed in our seats hoping to get players as they came out to stretch. We only got one, but it was a good one.
My wife and daughter camped out along the dugout railing hoping to get Carson Kelly. He was not catching that night so I was not guessing he would come out very early. About 10 minutes before game time he came out and signed for about 5 people, my daughter included.
