BASEBALL: New Braves spring training ballpark named CoolToday Park

The new spring training home of the Atlanta Braves has its name: CoolToday Park.

Tuesday the Atlanta Braves announced a partnership with CoolToday for the naming rights of their new spring training ballpark, slated to host its first game on Sunday, March 24, with the Braves taking on the Tampa Bay Rays at 4:05 p.m. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“As part of our commitment to maintain a lifelong relationship with our community, this partnership with the Braves organization, City of North Port, and Sarasota County will cement our presence and strategy for southern Sarasota County,” said Jaime DiDomenico, President/Owner of CoolToday. “The Braves have a proven track record of building strong ties to the community they operate in and we look forward to enhancing those ties going forward. I’m very excited about what the future holds.”

In practice, the name is LameAlways, but they can’t admit to that, can they?

Jose Bautista’s name inspires new beetle species

Meet the Joey Bats beetle.

Former Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista has inspired the name of a new weevil species that ain’t so pretty to look but bears his name proudly. (We think.)

The tiny black insect with a long snout from the Dominican Republic, Bautista’s home nation, has now been scientifically recorded as Sicoderus Bautistai.

[Insert jokes here]
