The Frederick Keys (High Class A; Carolina League) will have the ability to sell naming rights to Harry Grove Stadium under the terms of an amended lease.
The Keys and the city negotiated a deal where the Harry Grove name would remain on the facility in some fashion, as well as a 65-35 revenue split. From the Frederick News-Post:
The change comes as the city attempts to get new revenue to pay for the cost of operating the stadium, which is about $42,000 per year for the next 10 years.
Aldermen approved in October a change that will allow advertising and signage outside of the stadium in the complex.
