Meet the duo who really, really wants the Nashville Sounds’ new stadium to be successful
As a duo, Frank Ward, the Sounds owner, and Garry Arthur, the teams chief operating officer, are a study in contrasts. Arthur stands well over 6-feet tall, and Ward, well-under. Arthur, from Vancouver, speaks with a deep Canadian accent. Ward, who is from New York, speaks softly but with a heavy New York accent. They have one thing in common: Both love baseball. When I grew up, the sport I learned first was baseball, said Ward, who has been collecting rare baseball cards since the 1970s. You’d get a bat, a glove, and you’d go to a lot somewhere, and whether it was on the streets of New York, you still played baseball.
