MURFREESBORO — The Nashville Sounds will celebrate Middle Tennessee State University on Tuesday, May 3, with its second annual True Blue Night at First Tennessee Park.
MTSU’s men’s basketball coach Kermit Davis and MTSU’s women’s basketball coach Rick Insell will throw out the two ceremonial first pitches immediately before the Sounds play the Iowa Cubs at 6:30 p.m.
The Sounds are offering MTSU students, faculty, alumni and supporters special discounted tickets with designated seating for the game. You can buy tickets for $8 a seat on the Sounds’ website, http://bit.ly/TrueBlueNight, through May 2 by using the promotional code “TRUEBLUE” when prompted.
“We thank the Nashville Sounds for providing this great opportunity for the MTSU community to celebrate our True Blue pride in coaches Insell and Davis — and see some baseball in a terrific park,” said President Sidney A. McPhee.
Davis and Insell will sign special posters at the game commemorating their Conference USA championship seasons. Also, MTSU will provide giveaways and Lightning, the university’s mascot, will be on the field between innings.
The nationally recognized student group “Maybe April,” which includes MTSU’s Katy Bishop and Kristen Castro along with Alaina Stacy, will sing the National Anthem. The group was recently featured in Billboard Magazine as one of the industry’s “emerging female country trios.”
