The Atlanta Braves Triple-A minor league team, the Gwinnett Braves, have signed a 16-year stadium naming rights deal with Coolray Heating and Cooling. The ballpark will now be called Coolray Field.
"After our first full season of operation, the Gwinnett Braves continue to showcase our strong ties to the community and we are proud to partner with a great community-oriented company," says Mike Plant, Atlanta Braves Executive Vice President of Business Operations. "Coolray Field will continue to be a great place to bring family and friends and we welcome Coolray into our family."
As part of their naming rights agreement, Coolray will receive a sign at the main entrance to the ballpark, an LED marquee on Highway 20 and signage on top of the right field scoreboard.
"Making this investment into the Gwinnett community is Coolray's way of saying thanks to the many thousands of loyal customers that have honored us with their business over the years, said Ken Haines, President of Coolray Heating and Cooling. "Coolray and its employees are very excited about this partnership and look forward to the opportunity to grow along side both the Braves and the families of Gwinnett County."
