Home of Colt World Series makes big announcement.

The home of the COLT World Series, Rent One Park revealed the name of the new Prospect League Baseball Team on Thursday, February 23.
According to a release, after more than 7,000 votes, much debate and great anticipation, the baseball team will be called the Thrillbillies. “We couldn’t be happier with the response to our public survey to choose a name,” General Manager Dave Kost said.

The Big announcement was the Thrillville Thrillbillies calling Rent One Park Home, and leaders with the ballclub say the name will live up to the hype. It’s going to feed into the amazing party that’s going to be happening that a baseball game will just happen to break out at, said Herby Voss, Marketing Team Member at the Black Diamond Family of Businesses.

Voss says the community kept wondering when baseball will be back. It’s just been larger than we were. It’s amazing to see the crowd that came out to show us that we’re on the right track here in bringing baseball back to Marion.”

But Voss wants everyone to keep their eyes open for what’s next at the ballpark. We have got some big announcements on the park itself. We are going to transform this building, it’s a gorgeous facility but it’s a little gray around here,” said Voss.
