Field at The Cove getting new name as playoffs continue

Posted:

The field at Coveleski Stadium will be getting a new name.  The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi have bought the naming rights.  It will now be called Four Winds Field.  Coveleski Stadium will retain its name.

"We are thrilled to make this announcement for two reasons," said Silver Hawks owner Andrew Berlin.  "First, it fulfills another we made to the citizens of this community 22 months ago when we bought the team.  This corporate sponsorship means that as of today, taxpayers won't have to invest another dime for capital improvements at the stadium for at least a decade, probably longer. Second, we couldn't have asked for a better partner.  The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and its Four Winds Resorts care as much about this community as the Silver Hawks do."

The new name isn't the only excitement for Hawks fans today.  South Bend is playing in game two of their Midwest League Playoff series against Great Lakes at home.

Wednesday night the team beat the Loons 3-0 on the road in Midland, Michigan. That was Great Lakes' sole home game of this three-game series. It now turns to South Bend where the teams will play game two at 7:05 pm Thursday.

If the Silver Hawks win, they'll reach the Eastern Division finals where they would either play in-state rival Fort Wayne or Bowling Green. Fort Wayne holds a series lead after beating Bowling Green 5-1 Wednesday night.

If Great Lakes wins, there will be a deciding game three on Friday night at Coveleski Stadium. The Silver Hawks last won the Midwest League title in 2005 and won the Eastern Division title in 2008.

Team owner Andrew Berlin has made a number of successful changes in his two years in South Bend, including recording the team's second-highest attendance record ever this season. Thursday morning the team is expected to make an announcement about its next significant milestone.

    Councilman Derek Dieter calls for clearer Council policy on medical leave

    Officials say South Bend Common Councilman Henry Davis, Jr. is midway through his first week on medical leave, but the specifics of why he's out are unclear. He hasn't spoken publicly. Instead, all we have to go on is an email he sent the council president saying he needs to concentrate on his health. His request came a little over a week after his DUI arrest. Councilman Derek Dieter wants the full council to meet and clarify the leave of absence process.More >>
