First Horizon Park (previously First Tennessee Park) is home to the Nashville Sounds Triple-A Minor League Baseball team for the Milwaukee Brewers MLB team. The bag policy at the ballpark allows fans to bring in a clear bag that does not exceed 12″ x 12″ x 6″ in size. The exception to the clear bag and size rule is if you need to bring in a medical bag, diaper bag, small clutch bag, or something similar to the game.
Here is the First Horizon Park bag policy guide for your next Nashville Sounds game. I also share my bag recommendation on what to bring to the game. Finally, there is an affiliate link to Amazon on this page.
First Horizon Park, like most professional venues, only allows clear bags to enter the facility with fans. Below are the types of bags that can enter the venue, along with the exceptions to the clear bag and size rule
- A clear-single compartment bag that does not exceed 12″ x 12″ x 6″
Medical bags, ADA bags, and diaper bags are the exception to the rule via being clear and the size limit. However, the team recommends only bringing in a clear single-compartment bag, if possible.
- A small clutch bag, wristlet that fits in the size of your hand or 5″ x 9″
- A clear fanny pack
- Ziplock style plastic bag
My Clear Bag Recommendation + Experience
I’ve been to First Horizon Park for a baseball game. While I didn’t bring a bag to the game, their bag policy is very similar to other venues I’ve been to where I’ve brought a bag. From my experience, I’ve had no issues bringing my clear fanny pack to venues. It measures 11″ x 6.5″ x 5.9″ in size.
Below is my video recommending what clear bag to bring into stadiums.
How Does the First Horizon Park Team Review Bags?
Fans arriving at First Horizon Park for a game will go through one of two security checks. Fans who don’t have a bag will enter through the express entrance lanes and go through a metal detector screening. Meanwhile, fans with a bag will go through a metal detector screening and a bag inspection check by the stadium staff at the gate.
What are the Prohibited Items that Fans Can’t Bring into First Horizon Park?
Fans preparing their next trip to First Horizon Park for a baseball game should understand certain items can’t come into the venue with them. Some of those items that can’t go into the venue with them are below. Visit the A-Z guide for the ballpark to get the most up-to-date things the staff won’t allow inside the stadium.
- Animals not for ADA purposes
- Non-clear bags. (However, diaper bags, medical bags, and small wristlets are acceptable)
- Clear bags larger than 12″ x 12″ x 6″
- Laptop bags
- Outside food and drinks
- Selfie sticks
- Weapons of any kind
Is There a Bag Check or Locker Storage Area for Fans to Use at First Horizon Park?
There is no official on-site locker storage area at First Horizon Park for fans to use if they can’t bring their bag into the arena. Therefore, if the stadium staff doesn’t allow your bag to enter the ballpark, you must bring it back to your car.
If you don’t have a car to leave your bag in, see if a nearby hotel can watch it. There are a few hotels within walking distance of the Nashville Sounds ballpark that you can visit to see if they will hold onto your bag. Hotels holding onto bags tend to charge a small fee to watch your stuff when you are at the game.
Additional Information for a Nashville Sounds Baseball Game
There are 6k parking spaces within a half-mile of the Nashville Sounds ballpark for fans to use on game day. The team recommends that fans park at the State Parking Garage since it sits directly beside the ballpark.
Fans can’t bring any outside food or drinks into the venue. Therefore, if you want to eat at the game, you will need to get something at the venue’s concourse. Visit the First Horizon Park Food Guide for more details.
