The Ballpark at Jackson was built by the municipal government of Jackson, Tennessee and is the home of the Jackson Generals of the Southern League. The Generals are the Class AA affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. The stadium is located east of downtown Jackson and is visible from Interstate 40.
From its opening until November 1, 2012, The Ballpark at Jackson was known as Pringles Park, due to a naming rights agreement with Procter & Gamble, then-owners of the Pringles brand, which has a factory in Jackson. In 2012, the Pringles brand was sold to Kellogg Company. Kellogg's opted not to renew the naming rights agreement, and the name was changed to The Ballpark at Jackson for the 2013 season.
