The guitar-shaped scoreboard remains iconic at Nashville's Greer Stadium.
Unfortunately for the Pacific Coast League's Nashville Sounds, the rest of the park is outdated.
Opened in 1978, Greer Stadium is one of the oldest in the Pacific Coast League.
While the stadium has gone through several renovations, talks about a new stadium for the Triple-A team that has been in the city since 1985 have stalled.
That could leave an opening for Oklahoma City.
The Sounds' player-development contract with the Milwaukee Brewers expires at the end of the season.
Last month, a group including Nolan Ryan bought the Texas Rangers, virtually assuring the Rangers-RedHawks partnership would not be renewed. After nearly 30 years of having their Triple-A affiliate in Oklahoma City, the Rangers are expected to pair with Round Rock. Ryan also owns that team.
Neither RedHawks officials nor any officials from major league teams can comment on possible affiliation changes until Sept. 2.
The Brewers are among 13 teams whose PDCs with their Triple-A affiliates expire after this season.
The Mariners extended their agreement with Tacoma through 2014 this week.
The end of the regular season begins a one-month window for teams to negotiate PDCs with new clubs. Until then, teams can only renew their current deals. PDCs can be agreed to in either two- or four-year increments.
Milwaukee does have some connections to the RedHawks.
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin was the GM of the Rangers from 1994-2001.
Also, former RedHawks pitching coach Lee Tunnell is now the Brewers' minor league pitching coordinator.
If the Brewers were to change their affiliation to the RedHawks, it wouldn't only affect the players on the field but the style of play.
Since the RedHawks are currently affiliated with an American League team, pitchers never hit when the RedHawks play.
But with a National League affiliate, pitchers would hit when they play another NL team.
Currently, the RedHawks are the only team in the American Southern Division that is not affiliated with an NL team, although Round Rock would be next year if it is affiliated with Texas.
Seven other PCL teams have NL affiliates.
While the Rangers have been stable with their Triple-A affiliate, the Brewers have had five top affiliates since 1987.
Milwaukee has been affiliated with Nashville since 2005. Before that, the Brewers were affiliated with Indianapolis (2000-04), Louisville (1998-99), Tucson (1997) and Denver (1987-1996).
