The Nashville Sounds, a AAA-class baseball team from the Music City, has been undergoing a hefty makeover for their 2015 season. According to Ballpark Digest, the team is getting new uniforms, a new parent team (the Oakland As), a new logo, and a new ballpark. As their opening day of April 17th draws near, one more “new” addition has been announced for the minor league crew

Beginning this season, Hyundai will be a Nashville Sounds’ official automotive partner. The sponsorship is officiated by local Hyundai dealerships.

Apart from Hyundai’s logo being thoroughly displayed in the Nashville Sounds’ new ballpark, First Tennessee Park, what else will Hyundai contribute to the 2015 season?

Representatives say the outdoor seating area in left field will now be called the “Hyundai Deck.” Hyundai will also organize multiple giveaways, such as custom rally towels on April 24th and free tickets through trivia contests on 102.5 The Game.

“The Sounds are proud to be entering into this long-term sponsorship with Hyundai,” said Sounds COO Garry Arthur. “We believe our partnership with Hyundai is just another example of how this company wants to be a big part of the programs and activities that excite the people of this region.”

Like Hyundai and the team’s fans throughout mid-Tennessee, we’re looking forward to an exciting year of baseball!
