Bees Stadium Renamed for Smith's

Press Release

March 7, 2014

Salt Lake City – Miller Sports Properties along with Salt Lake City and Smith’s Food & Drug Stores, Inc., have formed a multi-year partnership and naming rights agreement for the Salt Lake Bees’ home stadium, to be known as “Smith’s Ballpark,” beginning with the 2014 season.

The six-year naming rights agreement between Smith’s and the Salt Lake Bees includes exclusive sponsorship and advertising rights and prominent signage on the stadium’s exterior façade along 1300 South, the team’s scoreboard in right center field and in numerous locations throughout the ballpark.

“As a city, we are very proud of this facility and the teams that call it home,” said Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker. “We are fortunate to be able to enjoy triple-A baseball here and we look forward to spending another summer watching baseball, picnicking on the grass and enjoying the fireworks at Smith’s Ballpark.”

With the christening of Smith’s Ballpark, the 15,411-seat natural grass facility celebrates its 20th anniversary this year as the home of the Bees, the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels. In June of 2013, the ballpark welcomed its 10-millionth fan through the gates since its dedication on April 9, 1994.

“We are delighted to join the Salt Lake Bees and Salt Lake City in this exciting partnership,” said Jay Cummins, Smith’s president. “This is a wonderful opportunity for Smith’s to help create lasting memories for Utah families within this beautiful ballpark."

The defending Bees will begin their season April 3 with an eight-game homestand at Smith’s Ballpark against Sacramento and Fresno.
