American Seating supplies the seats for
2011 MLB World Series
All four teams in the recent MLB Playoffs have American Seating seats:
St. Louis Cardinals’, Texas Rangers’, Detroit Tigers’ and Milwaukee Brewers’ stadiums
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH., USA—Oct. 19, 2011— Baseball’s a sport laced with superstition – from the Boston Red Sox’s decades-long “Curse of the Bambino” to Detroit Tigers Manager Jim Leyland refusing to change his underwear during a September winning streak – it’s a storied past.
As Game 2 of the 2011 Major League Baseball World Series kicks off tonight, there just might be another reason for baseball players, managers, owners and fans to be superstitious:
Both teams’ stadiums in the 2011 Major League Baseball World Series feature seats made by Grand Rapids, Mich.-based American Seating (http://www.americanseating.com).
In fact, all four teams’ stadiums in the 2011 American and National League Playoffs feature American Seating seats.
“We like to joke that if you want to get to the Playoffs and the World Series, your team better use American Seating seats,” said Bruce Weener, vice president, sales, American Seating. “Maybe there’s something to it!”
Here’s the rundown:
• St. Louis Cardinals’ Busch Stadium (42,500 American Seating seats installed in 2005; also installed seats in past Cardinals’ stadiums dating to 1965)
• Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington stadium (49,000 American Seating seats installed in 1994)
• Detroit Tigers’ Comerica Stadium (34,560 American Seating seats installed in 1999; and previously in the Tigers’ Briggs Stadium, built in 1938)
• Milwaukee Brewers’ Miller Park (34,161 American Seating seats installed in 1975)
That’s 160,221 seats – not counting seats from the past and many other major- and minor-league stadiums across country.
“We’re proud to be providing the seating for America’s favorite pastime,” Weener said.
