About eleven years ago I wrote an article for my Rangers site on Ballpark names and corporate sponsorships. At the time, I thought about how many stadiums were left that don’t have corporate names. Things have changed since I wrote that article, including at the Rangers home in Arlington. So I’ve decided to revisit that article and update it for all the changes since the original piece. Some info is harder to find – the primary source I used back then doesn’t exist anymore, and I’ve inquired with a few people with the Rangers about where to find that info publicly, and haven’t found a good updated source of info. So I’ll do my best to find the info – but a few below will say “N/A”, because I couldn’t find the info, not because I didn’t try.
NOTE: I published v2 of this article in July of 2016, and v3 in August of 2017. The only change between v2 & v3 is that I moved SunTrust Field to “current” vs “future”, and I updated some text and used the name of the new Rangers Park in 2020, as that was announced on Aug 24, 2017. The only difference between v3 & v4 is the addition of the new Rays park announced in July 2018. I also added a name change Seattle Mariners on Dec 19, 2018 and a name change for the San Francisco Giants on Jan 10, 2019. [Read more…]
