Saturday evening’s Niswonger Children’s Hospital benefit concert featuring Grammy-award winner Jason Isbell wasn’t the only first at Thomas Stadium.

“This is actually the first time I’ve ever played inside a baseball stadium,” said John Moreland, the opening act to Isbell’s show, before he played his set alone with an acoustic guitar as people began filing into the stadium. 

The crowd roared once Isbell stepped foot on stage after a long intermission after Moreland’s act.

When Isbell welcomed the crowd to the show shortly after 8 p.m., bottom-level field seating was nearly at capacity.
