White Sox changing stadium name to Guaranteed Rate Field; internet begins mocking


The Chicago White Sox agreed to a deal on Wednesday that will see their stadium renamed Guaranteed Rate Field at season’s end, and the internet is having a blast mocking the new name.

The new deal runs through the 2030 season and takes effect starting next year.

While we’re used to corporate ballpark naming rights, this one is pretty ridiculous, even by those standards. Naturally, Twitter reacted accordingly.

Amidst the mockery were details of some shady dealings made by the company in question.

We really do need Chris Sale’s take on this given the reasoning he gave for slicing up those jerseys. This is definitely one of the more cringeworthy corporate stadium names in all of pro sports.
