The Greensboro Grasshoppers wrest the popular tourney from Fenway Park.
NewBridge Bank Park, the home of the Greensboro Grasshoppers (Low Class A; Sally League), has been selected to host the 2010 Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Championship, according to ACC Commissioner John Swafford.
The 37th annual tournament was originally slated for Boston’s Fenway Park, but announced the switch in efforts to centralize its location and cut down travel costs during tough economic times.
“Were also very fortunate that our partnership with Greensboro allowed us to make this transition so smoothly,” said Swofford. “We appreciate the commitment they have made to the ACC, and we anticipate another successful Championship.”
“We are thrilled to have such a great event here at NewBridge Bank Park,” said Grasshoppers President and GM Donald Moore. “It is a wonder opportunity for our fans and for the city of Greensboro as a whole.”
The event marks the first time NewBridge Bank Park will play host to the ACC Baseball Championship.
