Bright House Field has a new name

Good morning! Here’s what’s up:

NEW SPECTRUM: Bright House Field in Clearwater has been renamed Spectrum Field, effective immediately.

Spectrum Field is where the Clearwater Threshers play; it’s also home to Phillies spring training.

Charter Communications – the second-largest cable company in America to Comcast – purchased Bright House Networks last year. It also acquired Time Warner Cable. Charter’s cable service is branded Spectrum, so now you know why you’ve seen so many Spectrum ads lately.

The Phillies own a 25 percent stake in Comcast SportsNet, and they do own the Threshers.
