NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Sounds already have a new ballpark. Tuesday night they got a new address.

Sounds and city officials held an unveiling before the first pitch at First Tennessee Park to show off the ballpark's new street name.

Jackson Street will now be known as Junior Gilliam Way in honor of Nashville native and former Brooklyn Dodger Jim "Junior" Gilliam.

Gilliam wore the number 19 in his playing days, so First Tennessee Park’s new address 19 Junior Gilliam Way.
