Until recently, both the Marlins’ previous ownership group and the current ownership had been unable to find a naming rights partner.

The Sherman/Jeter ownership group spent more than three years hunting for the right fit.

Terms of the deal remain unknown. Naming rights have varied widely in baseball, from $2M - $10M.
