The Jake's new name: Progressive Field

The Plain Dealer is reporting that the Indians have leased the naming rights to Jacobs Field to Progressive Insurance.  Progressive was always a natural fit for the Jake, as one of just a handful of Cleveland-based companies that would benefit not only from the regional community-leading stature that accompanies the naming of a stadium, but also from the massive brand-name repetition appearing in broadcasts and tens of thousands of news reports nationwide.

A press conference is expected later this afternoon, so more details are to come.  Full story.
