The ballpark in which the Athletics play in Oakland, California will now have a new name. The San Francisco Chronicle reports it will become the Ring Central Coliseum, named after the cloud based communications company for the low, low price of $1 million.
For those keeping track, this is, I think anyway, the sixth or seventh time that stadium has changed its name. It’s been Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on three different occasions. Its non-generic names were Network Associates Coliseum, McAfee Coliseum, Overstock.com Coliseum, and O.co Coliseum. Now Ring Central.
No word if the plumbing is being upgraded along with the name.
