Name game? Play Ball! Help us pick the best name for the West Palm Beach spring training stadium

Ready to play the stadium name game?

The Washington Nationals and Houston Astros are not asking you, but we are.

Later this year, the Nationals and Astros will start considering offers on the naming rights to their new spring training stadium in West Palm Beach.

One local businessman, William Meyer (of the Meyer Amphitheater family), has already expressed an interest. And the teams say other companies have made initial inquiries, too.

Hopefully, it won’t be along the lines of other unfortunate names — 1-800-ASK-GARY Amphitheater (now the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre) in Tampa. Or Whataburger Field in Texas. Or Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.

The 160-acre site in West Palm Beach is on an old landfill. Maybe the new ballpark can be called The Dumping Grounds? (Remember the old Polo Grounds?)

Enough from us. Your turn.

Fire away in the comment section below and we will post a new story later with some of your best suggestions!
