Since its inception, "Nashville Comes to the Ballpark" has raised more than $250,000 for Nashville and Sarasota Charities including Music Health Alliance, Girls Inc., Library Foundation of Sarasota County, Sarasota Academy of the Arts and YMCA Foundation of Sarasota.

Nashville's Music Row Come to the Ballpark is part of the Orioles' Arts in the Ballpark event series and Sarasota 365, a host of initiatives through which the Baltimore Orioles and OriolesREACH demonstrate the ballclub's year-round engagement with the Greater Sarasota community. A recent independent analysis commissioned by Sarasota County Government concluded that the Orioles generate approximately $89 million in annual economic impact back to taxpayers and residents. By marketing Sarasota to fans in the Mid-Atlantic region, operating a year-round athletic training facility, producing entertainment and sporting events, partnering with charitable causes, and hosting and often subsidizing youth sports tournaments and activities, the Orioles demonstrate an abiding commitment to their Florida home that goes far beyond baseball.
