Sounds sign boys battling illnesses to honorary contracts


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) —The Nashville Sounds made the day of two little boys who are undergoing treatment at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.  

Coben and Kolby have both been fighting serious illnesses for years and on Thursday, the Sounds signed them to honorary contracts. 

The boys spend several days and nights with the team, participating in batting practice and hanging out.  

When asked what he was thinking as he signed the contract, Kolby said, “I was thinking ‘Yes!’ I finally did it!”  

“We’re just appreciative to have a hospital in Nashville like Vanderbilt and for them to pair with an organization like the Sounds and be able to do something together as a family after so much hospital time is priceless,” said Coben’s mom Brittany Swanson. 

The Sounds General Manger told News 2 the boys already had their headshots taken and they have been a big hit around the clubhouse.
