Red Robin Park at Ebbets Field

Months of anticipation has come to an end as the most exciting news involving the Brooklyn Robins this winter has been revealed. The new ballpark will be named Red Robin Park at Ebbets Field. The corporate naming of the park comes with risks and rewards. The reward is that Red Robin has fronted the cash strapped Brooklyn franchise the money to get the park started. The downside is that fans could become even more disinterested in a team worried more about the bottom line then winning baseball games.

Red Robin was one of four finalists for the naming rights. Others included Nathans Famous Hotdogs, Jay Z's Rockawear Clothing line, and a group lead by Bernie Madoff. Thankfully the Robins were smart enough not to choose the later. Along with a yearly cash payout, Red Robins famous tavern burgers will be sold throughout the park. Surely to be the best burger in the league, finally Brooklyn can claim they are ranked #1 in something other then bad trades.

All joking aside, Brooklyn was adamant about keeping the team in Brooklyn and Ebbets field in the name. The Robins would have been eligible for a hefty relocating bonus if they had waited one more year and left the NYC Borough. GM Alan Ehlers was extremely excited that the team is staying put, "My mom was originally from Brooklyn, her name was Robin. There was no way I wanted to see the team leave no matter what the bonus was." So with a new stadium and naming rights in hand, the Brooklyn Robins look forward to the next chapter in their existence.
