CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA (May 8, 2015) – The Charlottesville Tom Sox have entered into a naming rights agreement with C-VILLE Weekly for the team’s home field during its inaugural season.  The Tom Sox will play their home games at C-VILLE Weekly Ballpark at Charlottesville High School.

C-VILLE Weekly’s sponsorship of the team will assist the efforts of the Tom Sox to make ongoing improvements to the facilities at Charlottesville High School, a slate of improvements scheduled over the next five years with a total estimated cost of $250,000.  Charlottesville Community Baseball, Inc., the non-profit organization that operates the Tom Sox in the Valley Baseball League, will fund the improvements after reaching agreement with the Charlottesville School Board earlier this year on the improvement plan.

“We are very excited to have the C-VILLE Weekly name on our field this summer,” said Joe Koshansky, Tom Sox General Manager.  “Their publication is all about our community, and they share our desire to serve our community.  It is a natural fit for our team to play at C-VILLE Weekly Ballpark at Charlottesville High School.”

“The support of C-VILLE Weekly will assist us as we move forward with improvements at CHS.  We have said from the beginning that we are not all about baseball, and our sponsors aren’t, either.  We are building a long-term community asset and we intend to make a real impact.  C-VILLE Weekly shares our vision.”

C-VILLE Weekly, in print since 1989 and online at c-ville.com, publishes every Wednesday with the best in local news, entertainment, and lifestyle coverage, including award-winning coverage of local politics and the University of Virginia, the arts, music, and food.  C-VILLE Weekly is distributed free throughout Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and Central Virginia; the print run is 23,000 with online updates posted continuously.

“For the past 25 years, C-VILLE has worked to be an integral part of the community through our comprehensive coverage of local news and entertainment and our sponsorship of some of this area’s best events,” said C-VILLE Publisher Aimee Atteberry. “We’re thrilled to be part of this exciting addition to summer in Charlottesville.”

The improvements to be made by the Tom Sox to the CHS facility begin immediately with a new press box and multi-purpose, all-weather hitting facility.  These will be delivered by the team to CHS by the first week of June, as will a hospitality pavilion for use by companies and groups.  Future improvements include new restroom facilities, a renovated concession stand and storage area, and seating improvements.

Season passes are on sale now, online at tomsox.com.  For a limited time, the “Load ‘Em Up” promotion offers season passes for $105, or 50% off the regular price.  A season pass includes parking in the CHS parking lot and game admission to all 21 home games not just for the holder of the pass, but for all occupants arriving together in a vehicle.

Opening Night for the Tom Sox is Tuesday, June 9 against the Covington Lumberjacks.  Game time for all home games at C-VILLE Weekly Ballpark at Charlottesville High School is 7:00
