— OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The home of the Triple-A Oklahoma City RedHawks has a new name.

The RedHawks and the Chickasaw Nation's Newcastle Casino announced Wednesday that the baseball stadium will now be called Newcastle Field at Bricktown.

An agreement between the club and the casino includes exclusive naming rights to the facility and opportunities to use the ballpark for Chickasaw Nation and Newcastle Casino programs.

The new name will go into effect immediately, with Opening Night for the 2012 RedHawks season scheduled for Thursday night.

Officials say signage at the ballpark will be manufactured and installed over the coming weeks.
