AROUND THE HORN: Charlotte-based box office and ticketing services company TicketReturn.com reached a one-year naming rights deal with the Single-A Carolina League Myrtle Beach Pelicans to name the team's stadium TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark (Pelicans). The ballpark was BB&T Coastal Field until the bank's naming rights contract "expired at the end of December" (MYRTLEBACHONLINE.com, 4/3)....The Single-A South Atlantic League Kannapolis Intimidators and Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast reached a naming-rights deal for the '12 season to name the team's ballpark CMC-NorthEast Stadium (Intimidators). The park had been "named Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium since it was built" in '94. The now-defunct textile company originally paid $300,000 for the naming rights. It was "supposed to be for the life of the stadium, but Pillowtex Inc., which later bought the company, was liquidated" (INDEPENDENTTRIBUNE.com, 4/2).
