Williamsport (PA) Mayor Gabriel Campana announced that he has successfully negotiated a corporate naming rights deal for Bowman Field, home of the Single-A Williamsport Crosscutters (New York-Penn League). If approved by the city council in June, the naming rights partner will pay the city $30,000 per year for five years. Funds will be used for ballpark improvements. The new name for the stadium will be “(Corporate Name) Park at Bowman Field.” Read more here.
