the green will now be called Kid Rock Field.
Says Kid Rock, in a statement, “This has been a dream of mine for a long

reach out to the fine people at Comerica Bank. Since they relocated to Dallas after opening the
stadium here, they were very open to the idea of making this deal. I’ve

name to the legacy of my favorite baseball team.”
