The Nashville Sounds renewed their partnership with Vanderbilt Health on Friday.

The Sounds said Vanderbilt was a founding partner as part of the inaugural 2015 season at First Tennessee Park and the health system continues to be a mainstay for the organization.

“Our partnership with Vanderbilt University Medical Center is something we’re extremely proud of,” said Sounds General Manager Adam Nuse. “The care and support they provide the greater Nashville area and beyond is of utmost importance to the region.”

The Sounds said players have made numerous in-season trips to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt to visit with patients and their families.

The organization also plans to name two honorary players to the team in early April. The two players are patients picked by Children’s Hospital and will be part of the team for the entire 2018 season, joining the Sounds during batting practice and taking the field during select home games.

“We are excited to continue our longstanding relationship with the Sounds, a treasured Nashville institution. For nearly 20 years our organizations have worked together to benefit the team’s players and provide on-site urgent care for fans. The special relationship that has developed between Sounds players and the patients and families of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is especially rewarding,” said C. Wright Pinson, MBA, MD, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Health System Officer for Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Vanderbilt Sports Medicine is the official sports medicine provider for Sounds players and on-field personnel and will hold an exclusive presence within the ballpark in terms of hospitals and health care.

The Vanderbilt Health Picnic Place is one of the largest group areas at First Tennessee Park. The area can host up to 200 guests under the shadow of the iconic guitar scoreboard and has helped the Sounds draw over 1.6 million fans during the ballpark’s first three seasons.

The Sounds home opener is set for Tuesday April 10 against the Iowa Cubs. Game time is 6:35 p.m. Call (615) 690-4487 for ticket information.
