Green Bay Booyah change name to Rockers
ASHWAUBENON — Following new owner Mark Skogen acquiring Capital Credit Union Park and the Green Bay Booyah baseball franchise last January, Boomerang Management renamed the team to the Green Bay Rockers.
The group, which also owns and operates the new entertainment venue Epic Event Center, has plans to host a variety of concerts in addition to Northwoods League baseball and a multitude of other sporting and community events at the stadium each year.
“There is so much synergy between the two venues, EPIC Event Center and Capital Credit Union Park, that it makes lots of sense,” Skogen said. “We’re providing live entertainment down the street and hoping to bring the same level of excitement to the stadium for our community to enjoy.”
Green Bay has plenty of history and knows a thing or two when it comes to music and throwing a party.
From Elvis and Poison playing at Brown County Arena, Elton John and Metallica at the Resch Center, Kenny Chesney and Paul McCartney at Lambeau Field, Red Hot Chili Peppers at Riverside Ballroom and the Winter Dance Party, the history of music runs deep in Green Bay.
“The new name allows us to exude a new energy and attitude to entertain the crowd at each game,” General Manager John Fanta said. “An example was the energy the NEW Piano Guys brought this past summer – our fans loved it. We plan to have live music at every game and hit different genres to enhance the experience at Capital Credit Union Park.”
The organization turned to Minnesota-based designer Tony Horning to make the vision come to life.
A new website is up and running at greenbayrockers.com along with new social media accounts — Facebook: Green Bay Rockers Baseball Club; Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and Snapchat: @gbrockers.
New Rockers merchandise will be available for the first time in the Team Apparel Fan Shop at Capital Credit Union Park (2231 Holmgren Way) beginning Tuesday, Dec. 14, as part of a Cookies with Santa event in partnership with EatStreet.
Fans will have a chance to partake in cookie decorating, meet and greet with Santa, purchase or renew ticket packages and pick up Rockers holiday gear from 4-7 p.m.
The team plans to unveil a new team mascot and player uniforms after the New Year.
