MADISON, Ga., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To mark the beginning of the 2014 baseball season and to kickoff the spring growing season, Pennington Seed, Inc., today announced it has finalized an agreement to become the official lawn care company of the New York Yankees. As part of the multi-year partnership, Pennington will develop and provide a portfolio of grass seed products to support the unique aesthetic, functional and maintenance needs of the iconic field at Yankee Stadium.
The New York Yankees sought Pennington to address the rigorous demands and continuous wear placed on their field. The Yankees grounds crew selected Pennington grass seed for its best-in-class aesthetic appeal and durability, as well as for its ease of maintenance. In addition, the partnership includes field days for professionals and local in-store promotions.
"We're proud that the dedicated turf professionals of Yankee Stadium and the New York Yankees turned to Pennington to deliver the highest quality seed for their field," said Jeff Crow, vice president of marketing at Central Garden & Pet Company, the parent company of Pennington Seed. "Whether being used to maintain the field at Yankee Stadium or to repair or establish your own yard, Pennington products are designed to establish thicker, fuller grass that can withstand the rigors of regular use, while using up to 30 percent less water versus ordinary seed."
From 81 home games to concerts and other events, the multi-function field at Yankee Stadium is continuously used throughout the year.
"We are very excited to begin a relationship with Pennington. We hope that utilizing Pennington grass seed products at Yankee Stadium, along with the in-Stadium signage, expands its brand awareness," said Michael J. Tusiani, New York Yankees Senior Vice President of Corporate Sales and Sponsorships.
Pennington offers a variety of grass seed mixes and blends to suit the needs of every homeowner. Pennington grass seed is available at home improvement stores and select independent retailers nationwide, including throughout the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
