Parkville, MD, May 26, 2021 – Harry C. Pohlman Field, home of the High-A Central Beloit (Wisconsin) Snappers, will henceforth NOT be known as Charles Nusinov & Sons Diamond.
Charles Nusinov & Sons, the well-known family-owned Parkville jewelry store, which has been serving the Baltimore area since 1923, won the temporary naming rights in an online auction to commemorate the final season of Pohlman Field, which opened in 1982. The Snappers will move into their new digs, ABC Supply Stadium, next month.
As part of the special auction, Pohlman Field was renamed Charles Nusinov & Sons Diamond for the Snappers May 16 game against the South Bend Cubs. The package included signage and public address announcements. Charles Nusinov & Sons Vice President Sydney Nusinov threw out the opening pitch, and was a fourth inning interview guest on the Snappers radio broadcast.
The Snappers are auctioning off the naming rights to each of their remaining games at Pohlman Field. “We’re very excited to offer our fans the ultimate ballpark experience in 2021,” team president Jeff Jurgella said. “For the fan who has always dreamed of having their name up in lights, this is an unprecedented experience.”
“We are the fun, friendly, neighborhood jewelers, so going to Milwaukee was off-market, but on-brand for us,” said Sydney Nusinov. “It was a great opportunity to have fun, feature our ecommerce at charlesnusinov.com, and to create content for social media. For me, personally, I felt like Ferris Bueller and the Snappers staff made by day off really memorable. ”
The son of former Oriole Jeff Conine, Miami Marlins prospect Griffin Conine, hit two home runs in the Snappers 12-6 loss. After the game, the Snappers mascot Snappy “proposed” in front of the entrance to Charles Nusinov & Sons Diamond.
