Lansing Ballpark Is Renamed
For Thomas Cooley Law School

 February 22, 2010

LANSING, Mich. (AP) The Lansing Lugnuts now have the law on their side.

The minor league club has announced an agreement with Thomas M. Cooley Law School under which the Lugnuts' downtown Lansing ballpark is being renamed for the law school located about a half-mile away.

Under the agreement, the law school will pay $1.485 million over 11 years, the length of the team's lease with the City of Lansing. The team and city will split the revenues

The stadium was named Oldsmobile Park when it opened 15 years ago. But General Motors Co., which stopped building Oldsmobiles in 2004, declined to renew its sponsorship agreement as it fell into bankruptcy last year.

The Lugnuts are a Toronto Blue Jays affiliate in the Class A Midwest League.
