The Willmar Stingers (summer collegiate; Northwoods League) are unveiling upgrades to Bill Taunton Stadium, starting with a new home plate club.
In their announcement today, the Stingers indicated that they will be announcing out ballpark improvements over the next four weeks. The first upgrade to be unveiled by the team is the Christianson Home Plate Club, which will be added to Bill Tauton Stadium before the 2017 season. The new premium and group area is sponored by Christianson PLLP.
The Christianson Home Plate Club will replace the first two rows of the lower level grandstand with 10 premium tables. Each table will include four swivel stadium chairs, an all-inclusive food and beverage package throughout the game with wait staff and a reserved parking spot.
Professional baseball teams across the country are creating areas inside their stadiums that bring not only a unique viewing area, but increase the overall fan experience. The Stingers, along with Christianson, are joining this growing trend with the addition of the Christianson Home Plate Club.
The Christianson Home Plate Club will provide the best viewing and fan experience in the entire ballpark and will become the ideal destination for entertaining current and prospective clients along with rewarding employees and their families. Fans will be able to reserve an exclusive table for four as a half-season membership (17 games) or a full season membership (34) games. Each membership comes with the best seat in the stadium and wait staff delivering unlimited food and beverages throughout the entire game.
As the planning and implementation process began for this project, the Stingers reached out to local companies to get their input and suggestions for how to best create this new exclusive area at Bill Taunton Stadium.
Hanson Silo, based in Lake Lillian, MN, came up with an idea to make use of the existing stadium chairs by retro-fitting each chair with a custom bracket and swivel adapter. With their design and engineering, four chairs will be placed around each of the tables. Hanson Silo will also be manufacturing the custom tables that will be used for the Christianson Home Plate Club.
“We are excited to partner with Christianson in the creation of this new seating area,” said Stingers Co-owner Marc Jerzak. “Along with the help of Hanson Silo, the Christianson Home Plate Club will give each ticket holder a one-of-a-kind experience inside Bill Taunton Stadium.”
