Allegheny Power extends Suns deal

July 16, 1998

Allegheny Power formally extended its deal with the Hagerstown Suns for naming rights to a new baseball stadium pending the results of a feasibility study, a company spokeswoman said Wednesday.

The extension has no specific expiration date, said Allegheny Power spokeswoman Midge Teahan.

Hagerstown officials want the $50,000 study done by November, so they can lobby the Western Maryland delegation to the Maryland General Assembly before the legislative session starts in January. City officials are looking for grants to help pay for the study.

The agreement was to expire July 1 and was renewed in a June 29 letter to the Suns, Teahan said.

Suns General Manager David Blenckstone said the extension was appropriate.

Under the agreement, Allegheny Power would pay $1 million for the rights to name a new baseball stadium Allegheny Energy Field.

The main site being considered for the $10 million stadium project is a lot off Interstate 81.
