SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Salt Lake City’s minor league baseball team has renamed its stadium.

The Bees announced Wednesday that the 15,000-seat facility will now be called “Smith’s Ballpark.”

The grocery store chain, Smith’s Food and Drug Stores Inc., signed a six-year deal to take over naming rights at the stadium. The company began with one store in Brigham City, Utah in 1932 and now has 47 stores.

The stadium was previously called SpringMobile Ballpark. It opened in 1994.

The Salt Lake Bees are the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels. They open their season on April 3.
