If Nashville is the capital of creative cool, then consider Herschel Greer Stadium its Fort Sumpter. Situated on the grounds of an American Civil War base, Greer is home to the Nashville Sounds – has there ever been a better fitting name in pro sports? – the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. "Nashville's fun, and when I'm there, I love going to Greer," says Ripken. Bonus points: Snag a picture of the 116-foot, guitar-shaped scoreboard, and you're all but guaranteed an editor's pick on Tumblr.
