The Nashville Sounds minor league baseball franchise has played in Nashville, Tennessee since its inception in the 1978 season. As of the completion of the 2013 season, the club has played in 5,157 regular season games and compiled a win–loss record of 2,651–2,506.[1] This list documents top players and teams in particular statistical areas. These records are correct as of the end of the 2013 season.

Jamie Werly holds the most franchise records, with seven, including one career pitching record, three single-season pitching records, and three single-game pitching records. He is followed by Skeeter Barnes and Steve Balboni, each with five franchise records. Barnes holds more career records than any other Sounds player, with four.

Combined, the team and individual players hold 21 league records.[2][3] The team holds five Southern League (SL) records and seven in the Pacific Coast League (PCL).[2][3] Individual players hold six SL, one American Association, and two PCL records.[2][3] In 1980, the franchise set the all-time Southern League season attendance record, which still stands.[4][5] Many of the PCL records were set on May 5–6, 2006, when the Sounds participated in a 24-inning game against the New Orleans Zephyrs, which matched the longest game, in terms of innings played, in PCL history.[6]
