[Unposted MLB] Pac Bell Renamed to SBC


 Share

Recommended Posts

This supposedly happened on the 16th or so:

With the New Year came a new ballpark moniker -- SBC Park -- and workers continue to unscrew old signs in a massive project. By March, all Pacific Bell signs will be gone, to be replaced by bright new ones with the SBC name. We're talking everything, even the large trash cans.

Don't see a problem... the company no longer exists, SBC bought the naming rights. You wouldn't just buy the rights and leave everything branded to a non-existant entity.

but its not that easy. stadiums are identified with their teams and if they are changing names every couple of years, its really just not the same. i'm proud to be a fan of a team that has never had a corporate named stadium

the field was named after ted turner, not his corporation. the stadium was built for the olympics and converted into a baseball stadium and the naming rights were never sold.

As for me. I refuse to brand the stadiums.
