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.
