FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - A credit union has struck a deal with the Frederick Keys for naming rights to the city’s minor league baseball field.

The Frederick News-Post (http://bit.ly/16goKes ) reported Tuesday that the city’s Board of Alderman could vote Thursday night on the tentative contract between the team and the Frederick-based Nymeo Credit Union.

The city agreed in 2011 to let the Keys pursue a naming-rights deal for the field at city-owned Harry Grove Stadium. If the aldermen agree, the playing surface will become Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium.

The parties haven’t publicly disclosed the terms of the deal. A city-sponsored study in 2013 found that naming rights could bring in as much as $250,000 a year. The city would get 35 percent of the proceeds under its lease with the Keys.
