The Rangers set their new ballpark’s dimensions to honor past players:

and they are honoring Ron Washington with 2 white powdery lines marking fair territory.

Bleh. Surprised it's not Family Dollar or something.

20 years of getting money from Miller and now a 15 year deal with this life insurance company and the Lerners are holding out for what????

I wonder if it's tied up in the MASN dispute somehow. Gotta be something.

they are holding out for when the old man kicks and then the kids will name it Ted Lerner Field.

I realize it's money in the team's pocket if they sell the rights, but I really, really like not having Corporation Park. It feels more iconic to have a 2019 World Series flag at Nats Park than say, Visa Stadium. Even worse when it changes multiple times like the MCI/Verizon/Capital One Center.

I would have no issues with naming the park Ted Lerner Field.  It would be extremely appropriate IMHO.

I'd accept that as well, but I would love it to always be Nats Park.

Probably waiting for DC to build a dome. The LernerDome.

American Family is sticking its name on everything in Wisconsin. And if a stadium was going to have a corporate name, there wasn’t a better fit possible than Miller Park in Milwaukee.
