The Greensboro Grasshoppers are a Class A minor league baseball team in Greensboro, NC, USA. If you’re a local in the area, chances are that not only have you heard about them, but you attend games regularly. The Grasshoppers have welcomed over 1,250,000 to the ballpark, the only Class A team in the history of Minor League Baseball to draw over 400,000 fans and grow its attendance for 3 consecutive years in a new ballpark (the stadium recently renamed to NewBridge Bank Park). Not surprising to see the figures, if you’ve attended a “Thirsty Thursday” before, you know what kind of crowd they draw!
We’ve certainly been drawn to them as well. As the official technology partner of the Grasshoppers, Beacon designed, developed and hosts the Grasshoppers website. Beacon Technologies also sponsors the “Beacon Blast”! (You didn’t see that coming did you?) Each time a Hopper hits a home run, a Beacon Blast is showcased on a monitor and fireworks fill up the sky – lighting the whole stadium!
Most importantly, we love attending the games and supporting the team. We love them so much we actually acquired a box at the stadium. Located in lower right in this seating chart, you’ll find us on some nights enjoying the game with our family and friends. You’ll know it’s us by the placard that says Beacon Technologies on it. Come by and say hello to our team!
