The Nashville Sounds, Metro and Baltimore developer Struever Bros., Eccles & Rouse have filed legislation with the Metro Council requesting the legislative body approve a April 15, 2007 closing date for the deal rather than the Dec. 31, 2006 date originally agreed on.

The parties first indicated Thursday that they would file for the extension of the Metro-to-Sounds land-lease closing date for the site where the team will build the downtown ballpark.

The filing deadline for legislation that the Metro Council will consider at its Dec. 19 meeting
