Food has been steadily improving in places like airports, movie theaters and concert arenas, where people gather for reasons other than to eat. Going to a baseball game on an empty stomach no longer means that you need to lower your culinary standards. In professional sports, baseball has led the way and at First Tennessee Park, home of the Nashville Sounds team, they are way ahead of the curve ball.
Things have changed, and now that innovative cooking and flavor combinations are now more widespread, baseball stadiums have become a place where one can sit down and try an abundance of delicious food. Although staples like hot dogs, nachos, and peanuts still make up about two-thirds of food sales, the menu has matured under Executive Chef Jerry Infantino to include Nash~chos, BBQ rubbed & mesquite-smoked baby back ribs,12 hour in-house mesquite smoked pulled pork sandwich, and hot chicken tenders to name a few.
Eating some delicious nachos is the perfect way to top off your baseball experience. At First Tennessee Ballpark, the Sounds kitchen pumps out delicious Nash~chos. The house fried potato chips are topped with smoked prime rib, caramelized onion, white queso, roma tomato & pickled red jalapeno! ! The nachos can be bought throughout the entire Sounds season.
