(February 6th, 2019: Avon, OH ) The Lake Erie Crushers, presented by Mercy Health, announced today they are searching for a new stadium naming rights partner for the 2020 season and beyond. The Avon, Ohio facility known now as Sprenger Health Care Stadium, will become available for a new name at the end of the 2019 calendar year.
"Sprenger has been a great partner for the past 3 seasons, and they continue to support the organization", stated Crushers Co-Owner Tom Kramig. "We understand their decision and look forward to locating a new naming rights partner as soon as possible."
"The Lake Erie Crushers have been a fantastic marketing partner with us the last three years during our naming rights agreement for Sprenger Stadium," said Michael Sprenger, Owner and COO of Sprenger Health Care Systems. "Tom Kramig, Matt Moos, and the whole Lake Erie Crushers team have been very responsive, accommodating, and forward thinking during our partnership. The prime signage location right on I-90 has been a very positive influence on our brand recognition locally and regionally."
The facility, located at 2009 Baseball Boulevard in Avon, Ohio, hosts 48 Lake Erie Crushers games a year, plus dozens of other local events. "With nearly 200 events annually, our location on I-90, and more than 125-thousand people visiting the ballpark, the advertising value of the naming rights deal is outstanding", Kramig added.
The Stadium opened in 2009 for the Crushers Inaugural Season, in which they won the Frontier League Championship. The facility was originally known as All-Pro Freight Stadium, however the Sprenger Health Care Organization purchased the naming rights in 2017.
The facility is owned by the City of Avon, Ohio and leased by the Crushers. Interested parties can contact Crushers Co-Owner Tom Kramig at 440-934-3636 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information regarding the naming rights opportunity.
