LAKEWOOD BLUECLAWS PARTNER WITH SUNRUN TO EDUCATE FANS ON HOME SOLAR POWER
LAKEWOOD, New Jersey - April 12, 2017 - The Lakewood BlueClaws today announced it will be one of 16 teams featured in a multi-year partnership between Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) and Sunrun (Nasdaq: RUN), the largest dedicated residential solar company in the United States. The partnership, now in its second year, was inked in 2016. As the "Preferred Residential Solar Power Provider of Minor League Baseball," Sunrun will help educate baseball fans across the country on the financial and environmental benefits of Sunrun solar.
The Storm join a list of clubs in all classifications of MiLB to support Sunrun's campaign to educate fans on the financial and environmental benefits of Sunrun solar. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the Sunrun brand, showcasing that it can provide homeowners access to technology that enables energy generation, storage and management.
As part of the campaign, BlueClaws centerfielder Mickey Moniak has been selected to Sunrun's 'The Future is Bright' lineup. The list, compiled by participating clubs, highlights one top prospect in each of the 16 communities that Sunrun serves in partnership with MiLB. Moniak, 18, has recorded hits in all five games for the BlueClaws this spring in his first full season of professional baseball. He was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies with the first overall pick in the 2016 First-year Player Draft.
"Mickey Moniak is a top prospect in the Padres organization and certainly deserves to be included in Sunrun's 'The Future is Bright' lineup," said Lakewood BlueClaws General Manager Chris Tafrow. "We're proud to partner with Sunrun again this season to educate our fans on the benefits of using solar to power their homes."
This season, the BlueClaws will also host "Sunrun Sundays," giving young fans the opportunity to escort players to their on-field positions as part of Sunrun's Jr. All-Stars program.
