LAKE ELSINORE, California - April 12, 2017 - The Lake Elsinore Storm 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, Storm pitcher Cal Quantrill 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. Quantrill, 22, moved quickly through the lower levels of the San Diego Padres organization after being drafted out of Stanford University in the first round of the 2016 First-Year Player Draft. The right-hander struck out 46 batters while walking just eight in 12 starts between Fort Wayne, Tri-City and the Arizona League Padres.
"Cal Quantrill is a top prospect in the Padres organization and certainly deserves to be included in Sunrun's 'The Future is Bright' lineup," said Lake Elsinore Storm General Manager Raj Narayanan. "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 Storm 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.
