Summer 2021 - Baseball is BACK!

The Beloit Snappers are offering a really cool opportunity for fans. Not only that, they're also making minor league baseball history. This will mark the first time in professional baseball history that a stadium’s name has been up for auction, according to the team.

WIFR details -

For every remaining home game at Pohlman Field, the Snappers are auctioning off the naming right of the ballpark. Fans will have the opportunity to bid on the naming rights through MILB auctions leading up to each game in 2021 at the stadium with a minimum bid of $500.

The winning bidder will be able to choose the stadium’s name for the night, get eight tickets, be interviewed on the radio broadcast and even lead Take Me Out to the Ball game with proceeds benefitting the local Boys and Girls Club.

President Jeff Jurgella of the Beloit Snappers says -

It’s just a unique situation here with half the season here before we move crosstown into the new river bend stadium. There will be an announcement about our naming rights partner over there soon enough. I just think a very clever idea highlighting the almost 40 years playing at Pohlman Field and more importantly helping the mission here with Stateline Boys and Girls Club.

Have a special event coming up this summer? Name the stadium for it! Name it after dad, have a proposal, advertise your business, whatever you want to name it is up to you.

You can bid on your own stadium night here.
