Minor League Baseball has announced a new, multi-year corporate partnership with ServiceMaster. The partnership will include the ServiceMaster Ballpark Tour, which will make stops at several ballparks this season.
The partnership kicked off Tuesday, March 21, before a Spring Training game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Minnesota Twins at Hammond Stadium located in the CenturyLink Sports Complex in Fort Myers. The complex is also home to the Ft. Myers Miracle (High A; Florida State League).
To build excitement ahead of its upcoming ballpark tour, ServiceMaster sent The ServiceMaster Experience traveling display, a 53-foot, double-expandable trailer custom-built to resemble a home, to Fort Myers from its home in Memphis, making stops along the way in Minor League Baseball cities including Pearl, Mississippi; Montgomery, Alabama; and Lakeland, Florida. The mobile experience will offer fans an interactive experience outside the ballpark, along with branded giveaways, games and more.
“ServiceMaster is built on a foundation of providing essential services – both to our customers and the communities where our employees live and work,” said Pete Tosches, ServiceMaster’s senior vice president of corporate communications. “Much like Minor League Baseball, ServiceMaster employees, franchisees and contractors are committed to their local communities. This partnership will help connect consumers to the trusted service professionals who protect and maintain 75,000 U.S. homes and businesses each day.”
“ServiceMaster’s commitment to local community partners echoes Minor League Baseball’s commitment to delivering a first-class, family-friendly ballpark experience for our fans,” said David Wright, Minor League Baseball’s chief marketing & commercial officer. “Through this partnership, we will connect MiLB’s devoted and engaged fan base with ServiceMaster and its impressive list of brands and services.”
The 2017 ServiceMaster Ballpark Tour will visit Minor League Baseball ballparks in Texas, California and Florida. To learn more about ServiceMaster’s partnership with Minor League Baseball and the Welcome Home Tour, visit www.ServiceMaster.com.
