     Interesting Features
    Excellent graffiti, kitchens, old swag, box office, bleachers, guitar shaped scoreboard, lots of vandalism, private box rooms upstairs, dugouts.

    As of 5-18-19, this site has been demolished...all that remains are the night lights and the scoreboard, amid a few piles of rubble.
    The iconic scoreboard will apparently be kept and incorporated into the new property intended to take the stadium's place.

     History
    Herschel Greer Stadium is an abandoned Minor League Baseball park located in Nashville, Tennessee, on the grounds of Fort Negley, an American Civil War fortification, approximately two miles (3 km) south of the city's downtown district. It can currently seat 10,300 people.

    Built in 1978 for the Nashville Sounds, an expansion franchise of the Double-A Southern League, the stadium played host to the team until 2014. In 1985, the Sounds transitioned into a Triple-A franchise, competing first in the American Association and later the Pacific Coast League. Amidst the Sounds' 37-season run, Greer simultaneously hosted two professional baseball clubs in 1993 and 1994, acting as a temporary home to a displaced Southern League franchise known during that period as the Nashville Xpress. The stadium also saw occasional use as a field for college baseball, high school football, and charity softball events.

    The stadium is best recognized by its distinctive guitar-shaped scoreboard, which displayed the line score across the neck. It has been the site of three minor league all-star games, eight no-hit games, including one perfect game, and a 24-inning game which tied the record for the longest game in PCL history.

    The subject of numerous upgrades and repairs to maintain its functionality, Greer became one of the oldest stadiums used by a Triple-A team, and by the end of its use had fallen well below professional baseball's standards for a stadium at that class level. For over a decade, the Sounds attempted to secure agreements with the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County for a new ballpark to replace Greer, eventually resulting in the construction of First Tennessee Park, which became the Sounds' new home in 2015.

    Greer Stadium has been closed and unused since the end of the 2014 baseball season, and virtually abandoned since the Sounds' offices were moved to the new facility in early 2015. As of August 2018, the stadium is still standing, but Mayor David Briley has proposed demolishing the structure and reincorporating the land into Fort Negley Park.
