Mets rename spring home Digital Domain Park
The Mets are losing their tradition.
Tradition Field, the team's spring training home, was renamed Digital Domain Park on Tuesday.
The ballpark was known as Thomas J. White Stadium when it opened in 1988, named after a local politician, and was renamed Tradition Field in February 2004 under a 10-year agreement with Core Communities. That company operates Tradition, a 16,000-home community in the area.
The new naming-rights deal is with Digital Domain Holdings Corp., the parent of the Digital Domain visual effects studio in Venice, Calif. It includes provisions for programming at New York's Citi Field and its scoreboard on some dates.
Digital Domain is planning to open a studio in Port St. Lucie.
