Granville to spend $9,000 to sponsor West Virginia Black Bears

MORGANTOWN — Granville Town Council voted to pay $9,000 to sponsor the West Virginia Black Bears this season and next.
Mayor Patricia Lewis and Park Director Michael Bean were absent from Tuesday’s meeting. Recording Secretary Mary Beth Renner filled in.
The $9,000 package includes a pregame commercial at every game, concourse signs and a suite rental for 50 people for Granville’s first responder event on Labor Day.
Granville Police Chief Craig Corkrean purposed that Granville have a few standard public service announcements for regular baseball games, then a different PSA for special games.
The filming of the PSAs will be soon for the upcoming games.
“They supply filming it,” said Corkrean. “We would shoot it up there and probably incorporate players and everybody in it.”
