WEST SACRAMENTO, California – April 12, 2017 – The Sacramento River Cats announced it will be one of 16 teams featured in a multi-year partnership between Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) and Sunrun (Nasdaq: RUN), the largest dedicated residential solar company in the United States. The partnership, now in its second year, was inked in 2016. As the “Preferred Residential Solar Power Provider of Minor League Baseball,” Sunrun will help educate baseball fans across the country on the financial and environmental benefits of Sunrun solar.
The River Cats join a list of clubs in all classifications of MiLB to support Sunrun’s campaign to educate fans on the financial and environmental benefits of Sunrun solar. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the Sunrun brand, showcasing that it can provide homeowners access to technology that enables energy generation, storage and management.
As part of the campaign, River Cats right-hander Tyler Beede has been selected to Sunrun’s ‘The Future is Bright’ lineup. The list, compiled by participating clubs, highlights one top prospect in each of the 16 communities that Sunrun serves in partnership with MiLB. Beede continues to show the promise that made him the San Francisco Giants’ first round pick in 2014 out of Vanderbilt University. The 23-year-old has posted a 2.76 ERA in 25 starts since the beginning of the 2016 season, while striking out 138 batters in 153.1 innings.
“Tyler Beede is a top prospect in the San Francisco Giants organization and certainly deserves to be included in Sunrun’s ‘The Future is Bright’ lineup,” said Sacramento River Cats General Manager Chip Maxson. “We’re proud to partner with Sunrun this season to educate our fans on the benefits of using solar to power their homes.”
This season, the River Cats will also host “Sunrun Sundays,” giving young fans the opportunity to escort players to their on-field positions as part of Sunrun’s Jr. All-Stars program.
