Great idea, but it needs some work. Wrigley is named after the chewing gum company. Although it is no longer sponsored by the Wrigley Company, it's still a corporate name. On the other hand, the Bradley Center is named after Jane Pettit's late father, not a corporation.

Nassau Coliseum (Islanders) should be on here.

Wrigley is debatable whether it was named after the Wrigley company or William Wrigley the Cubs owner (and founder of the company). The Metrodome should be on here because the stadium itself isn't named after a company, only the field itself within that stadium has a company's name on it.

Thanks for the help guys. I meant to put the Bradley center and Nassau Coliseum, but just forgot. I thought the Metrodome for some reason was Mall of America Field at the Metrodome. And Wrigley is named after William Wrigley so it applies.

The original Busch Stadium (formerly Sportsman's Park) was named after Gussie Busch. The two subsequent Busch Stadiums retained the name. There is a sponsorship deal between the brewery and team now (A-B actually owned the team when the 2nd Busch Stadium was built), but that's as much about exclusivity in the stadium and advertising as it was about branding the stadium. I may be biased, but I'd say if Wrigley isn't a corporate name, Busch isn't either.

You should also add Turner Field in Atlanta. It is named after Ted Turner.

You forgot the Great American Ballpark in Cincy.

Also, the Palace at Auburn Hills in Detroit

I included the Palace already. As for the Great Amercian Ballpark, when I was researching it turns out it's named after the Great American Insurance Group, so it doesn't fall under the non-corporate named stadium

Yeah I definitely think Wrigley and Busch shouldn't be on here, but I was always under the impression that Turner Field sponsored by TBS (Turner Broadcasting Systems) which is based in Atlanta!

The Oakland Alameda County Colisseum no longer bears a corporate name, and the new Marlins Park in Florida isn't corporate either. If you update this at some point, you may want to add these!
