The Lake Erie Crushers and Mercy Health – Lorain have reached an agreement on a new partnership to rename the former Sprenger Stadium, Mercy Health Stadium. The 3-year agreement will be effective January 1st, 2021 in anticipation of the Crushers returning to the field next season.

“ We are very excited about this extension of our long-standing partnership with the Crushers organization”, stated Edwin Oley, market president, Mercy Health – Lorain. “Putting the Mercy Health name on the ballpark is just another way our ministry continues to invest within the communities we serve, and in the great game of baseball in northern Ohio.”

Mercy Health’s partnership with the Crushers organization dates back a decade when they signed on as the presenting sponsor of the Crushers. Mercy Health – Lorain operates two acute care hospitals within Lorain County, along with a number of primary, specialty and walk-in care sites in addition to a full-service cancer care center.

“To be able to call Mercy Health Stadium home for the next 3-years is a great thrill for the Crushers organization”, according to Crushers Co-Owner Tom Kramig. “We look forward to continuing to work with Mercy Health – Lorain to bring affordable family entertainment to Cleveland’s west-side communities for many years to come.”
