The Eagles announced that they are selling naming rights to three of their Eastern League games this season (April 18, 19, and 20).  Interested fans can submit entries between March 1 and 31 explaining why they deserve to right to name a game.  The three best submissions will be picked and winners will be able to purchase the naming rights to the games for 30,000 yen.  Naming rights also come with a number of other perks, like throwing out the ceremonial first pitch and receiving autographs from players in the starting line-up.
