With all this talk
about where the Predators
may or may not move (there's a "Save the Predators
" benefit on July 10 at The Rutledge, btw), let us not lose sight of the fact that our very own Nashville Sounds are back in first place, their parent club, the Milwaukee Brewers, are also in first place, and that, in a momentous week for the game of baseball—Frank Thomas hit his 500th home run and Craig Biggio got his 3,000th hit, making them just the 21st and 27th members, respectively, of those elite groups—Nashville pitcher Manny Parra threw just the third nine-inning perfect game
in the 104-year history of the Pacific Coast League.
What's more, the Sounds are running quite possibly the oddest promotion I've ever heard of: "Sunday is...the beginning of July Beef Month. Sounds fans who purchase $10 or more worth of beef from any local grocer have the opportunity to bring their receipt to the Sounds box office and receive two complimentary general admission tickets to any Sunday through Thursday home game during the month (excluding July 3)."
