The Nashville Sounds welcome fans back to First Horizon Park with their 2024 home opener Tuesday evening against the St. Paul Saints.

Why it matters: Nashville is one of the nation's top minor league baseball towns, and the Sounds have thrived in their ballpark since it opened in 2015.

Fun fact: Minor league baseball teams consistently pull off the best fan-friendly promotions, and the Sounds' 2024 schedule is chock0full of them.

If you go: In honor of the home opener, the Sounds are selling specialty tickets, including $20 of "loaded value" to spend at concession stands.

  • Nashville Mayor Freddie O'Connell will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Unfortunately, stormy weather may put the game in jeopardy.

Wednesdays: The Sounds and Kroger are partnering for a recurring Wednesday promotion: Fans can buy four tickets, four hotdogs and four sodas for $44 by showing proof of the Kroger mobile app at the team's box office.

Thursdays: Thirsty Thursday returns with discount sodas and beer.

Plus: Another cool promotion pays homage to Nashville's rich Negro league history. On June 19 and Aug. 10, the first 1,000 fans get a Henry Kimbro bobblehead. A Nashville native, Kimbro starred for the Nashville Elite Giants.

What we're watching: There will be extremely talented players for fans to check out at First Horizon this season. The Sounds are the Triple A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, who boast one of the best farm systems in all of baseball.

  • Some of the Brewers' top prospects will begin the season in Music City. Jeferson Quero, a 21-year-old catching phenom, is ranked the No. 35 prospect in baseball by MLB Pipeline. Corner infielder Tyler Black is ranked No. 44.
  • Other top prospects, like pitcher Jacob Misiorowski, could make their way up to the Sounds this season as well.
