Nashville Sounds Sold To New York Investors

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Sounds have been sold to a New York real estate holding company.

The Sounds and its partner, Amerisports Companies, LLC, made the announcement Thursday morning. The new owners, MFP Real Estate, will take over operations before the beginning of the 2009 season.

The group has asked Metro government for a renewed lease of Greer Stadium.

"We are very excited," said MFP partner Frank Ward. "We will begin immediately reaching out to the community and letting folks know that we are serious about improving the Nashville baseball experience."

Ward said he and partners Masahiro Honzawa and Steve Posner were committed to Music City. One of Ward's four children is a junior at Vanderbilt University.

"I personally plan to have a house here and spend much of the year in Nashville. We will be very visible in Nashville and at the games," said Ward.

The sale is subject to approval by Major League and Minor League Baseball.
