Dodgers Seek Naming Rights Deal for Dodger Stadium Field

Dodgers Seek Naming Rights Deal for Dodger Stadium Field

According to the Sports Business Daily, the Dodgers have had the naming rights to the field at the third oldest stadium in Major League Baseball up for sale since early Spring with an asking price of $12 million.

While these high price tags are now common for naming rights, the case for Dodger Stadium remains an anomaly; would anyone really shell out that much money if fans are just going to keep calling it Dodger Stadium?

But don't expect "Dodger Stadium" to disappear from the title, according to team president Stan Kasten.

"We'e not anxious about any discussions that we're having now being a problem", Kasten added.

And ever since they started playing in Dodger Stadium in 1962, the home of Big Blue has been called just that - Dodger Stadium. "That's the only thing I'm willing to tell you".

Do you support the team selling the naming rights to the field or do you think it would tarnish the history of an iconic ballpark?

The Los Angeles Times clarifies that the sponsorship rights would be for the field itself, and not the stadium.

The NBC Field at Dodger Stadium has a nice ring to it. The Dodgers' sales pitch also could be complicated by the pending availability of naming rights for the National Football League stadium the Rams and Chargers plan to share in Inglewood, starting in 2020.

Now the third-oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball, Dodger Stadium has a remarkable history that places it among the more venerable venues in the game.

In Anaheim, owner Arte Moreno has not sold stadium naming rights, in the interest of branding his team rather than a corporation. Atlanta's Philips Arena and Houston's Reliant Stadium have deals that hit the $12 million dollar mark-the amount that the Dodgers are requesting.
