Intimidators now playing in CMC-NorthEast Stadium

The Kannapolis Intimidators and Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast have agreed on a stadium naming rights agreement that takes effect for the 2012 season. The Intimidators will take the field at CMC-NorthEast Stadium to open the season on Thursday. A new stadium logo will greet fans entering the gates and will be featured throughout the ballpark and on team printed materials. The name was announced in front of the stadium today.
“Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast has had a long and distinguished history of bringing excellent healthcare to residents of Cabarrus and Rowan counties. As part of our mission, we encourage healthy lifestyle habits including team sports and family activities,” said Phyllis Wingate, president of CMC-NorthEast.
“Our partnership with the Kannapolis Intimidators continues a tradition throughout our 75-year history of supporting local companies and organizations, and encouraging activities that bring families together. We’re proud that the new stadium name reflects our ongoing support of local entities, and look forward to a continuing relationship between the Kannapolis Intimidators and CMC-NorthEast.”
CMC-NorthEast has been a supporter of Intimidators baseball since the team’s inaugural baseball season in 1995. The 457-bed hospital is located in Concord, first opened in 1937 and joined the Carolinas HealthCare System in 2007.
The ballpark opened its gates in 1995 as Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium and hosted 17 seasons of professional baseball even after its namesake mill closed. With a new name, the ballpark also welcomes a new neighbor as CMC-Kannapolis recently opened.
