What the Nashville Sounds are sometimes known for

What the Nashville Sounds are known for

Despite winning the PCL championship in 2005, and lots of talk about getting a new downtown ballpark which never happened, this is what the Nashville Sounds were known for nationally in 2006. Their "Faith Night" games where the stadium giveaway is a bobblehead of a Bible Character. Jonah was given out at the June 16th game. Purity Dairies, another Quintessential Nashville company, was the title sponsor. The first 2000 people through the gates got one. Characters in the past include Samson, Moses and Noah, with no plans to ever make a Jesus bobble.

More info can be found in this NPR article.

It looks like the Sounds have discontinued this idea for now. The only bobblehead giveaway in 2010 is former Sound Prince Fielder, who of course is not a Bible character.

The longtime quintessential icon of minor league ball in the Music City is the large guitar-shaped scoreboard which has now been around for about 15 years.
