Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Nashville Sounds' 1988 season was the franchise's eleventh year of play. The team finished the regular season with a record of 73 wins and 69 losses. They finished second in their division, which kept them out of the post-season. The 1988 Sounds were in last place and had a losing record until making numerous management changes late in the season. During a two-week period in July and August 1988, the Sounds went through five different managers. The team started the season with Jack Lind, who left due to health problems. His position was filled on an interim basis by pitching coach Wayne Garland until former manager George Scherger, manager of the 1979 South League championship Sounds, was brought in. He retired after one game and was replaced by Jim Hoff, who stayed a few days before taking up a position with the Reds' front office. Finally, former Texas Rangers manager Frank Lucchesi was hired to lead the Sounds for the rest of the season. Lucchesi managed the team's last 39 games, leading them to a final record of 73-69. They finished second in the East Division and were out of the playoffs.show more
