A new agreement could mean Constellation Field will keep its name as the ballpark of the Sugar Land Skeeters, the Triple-A affiliate of the Houston Astros.

Constellation, a national supplier of energy and clean energy solutions, has inked with the Houston Astros a long-term extension for the naming rights of the ballpark, which has held the Constellation name since it opened in 2012, according to a Nov. 30 announcement.

A Houston Astros official said the exact terms of the extension—such as the length—will not be disclosed, though as per the agreement, Constellation will continue to be the official energy supplier of the stadium and the club.

“Constellation has been a great supporter of baseball and the Sugar Land community since the stadium was built in 2012, and we are excited to be able to announce our continued partnership,” said Creighton Kahoalii, Astros senior vice president of affiliate business operations, in the announcement.

In addition, as part of the agreement, Constellation and Sugar Land will continue their charitable support of Candlelighters—which looks to provide support to families with children with cancer—with annual on-field specialty jersey auctions.


“The Houston Astros are among the most successful franchises in professional sports, and Constellation is proud to build upon our relationship,” said Mark Huston, president of Constellation’s national retail business, in the announcement. “Constellation Field has been at the center of the Sugar Land community for the past decade, and we look forward to continuing to support Sugar Land and the greater Houston community.”

The extension comes as the ballpark has undergone several key renovations since the Skeeters were acquired by the Astros in 2020, including new full-field stadium netting, new batting cages, and a complete redesign of the weight rooms and clubhouses, which now include a full-service kitchen.
