Montana State Billings has announced the naming rights to its softball facillity have been purchased by the Avitus Group.

The five-year deal will be effective on April 1.

The contract will enable MSUB to build a new press box, paint the scoreboard and make other improvements to the facility.

"A special thanks goes out to the entire Avitus Group staff for making this happen," said MSUB athletic director Krista Montague. "Avitus Group is a first-class organization and we couldn't be more excited to have our softball facility be named Avitus Group Stadium."

Construction of the new press box will begin following MSUB's last softball game on April 12 and will be completed by the end of summer.

A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Friday, April 11, at 12:30 p.m. prior to the first game of a doubleheader against Northwest Nazarene.

A representative from Avitus Group will throw out the first pitch.

"Avitus Group makes it a priority to give back to the community where our company started," Avitus Group Marketing and Public Relations Director Dianne Parker said. "We're excited to support MSUB and the higher education system in Montana. These students are the future, and we can think of no better cause than to support the next generation as they make education a priority."
