RANCHO CUCAMONGA, California - The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 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 Quakes 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, Quakes right-hander Walker Buehler 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. Buehler was the Los Angeles Dodgers' first round selection in the 2015 draft before undergoing ligament replacement surgery in his pitching elbow that summer. After pitching in three games late in 2016, the 2017 season will be the first full season for the 22-year-old.
"Walker Buehler is a top prospect in the Dodgers organization and certainly deserves to be included in Sunrun's 'The Future is Bright' lineup," said Rancho Cucamonga Quakes Vice President/General Manager Grant Riddle. "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 Quakes will also host Kids Eat Free "Sunrun Sundays," providing free Tremor meals for all kids 12 and under and the opportunity to deliver the game ball to the Quakes' starting pitcher.
