MEMPHIS, Tenn., March 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SERV), a leading provider of residential and commercial services, today announced its multi-year partnership with Minor League Baseball (MiLB), and will be embarking on a "ServiceMaster Ballpark Tour" to celebrate with fans at select MiLB ballparks across the country this season. The partnership will kick off Tuesday, March 21, before a Spring Training game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Minnesota Twins at Hammond Stadium located in the CenturyLink Sports Complex in Fort Myers, Florida. The complex is also home to the Ft. Myers Miracle, Class A Advanced® affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.
To build excitement ahead of its upcoming ballpark tour, ServiceMaster sent The ServiceMaster Experience traveling display, a 53-foot, double-expandable trailer custom-built to resemble a home, to Fort Myers from its home in Memphis, making stops along the way in Minor League Baseball cities including Pearl, Mississippi; Montgomery, Alabama; and Lakeland, Florida. The mobile experience will offer fans an interactive experience outside the ballpark, along with branded giveaways, games and more.
"ServiceMaster is built on a foundation of providing essential services – both to our customers and the communities where our employees live and work," said Pete Tosches, ServiceMaster's senior vice president of corporate communications. "Much like Minor League Baseball, ServiceMaster employees, franchisees and contractors are committed to their local communities.
