New group purchases Nashville Sounds

WKRN Channel 2 News
The Nashville Sounds officially have new ownership.
The group MFP Baseball got final approval to buy the Sounds Thursday. The new owners say they are committed to keeping the team in Nashville and to prove it, they've already spent $2 million of their own money on improvements to 30-year-old Greer Stadium. "To show and indicate not only to us inside the office but to the fans and to the community at large that these guys are serious and we are serious about change and providing that environment and getting that pride back," new Sounds GM George King told News 2. Inside the stadium, every surface is getting a fresh coat of paint and new seating will be installed. On the field, the infield and the outfield have been improved, and the famous guitar score board has been repaired so it works properly. A brand new sound system has also been added. A complete makeover is also in the works for Greer's restroom facilities. The new owners hope to have all construction complete by April 1. The 2009 season begins at home on April 9 against the New Orleans Zephyrs.
