The Houston Astros want to get out of a naming rights agreement for its ballpark, saying the name is tarnished.
"With the 2002 season looming, lawyers for the team asked U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Arthur Gonzalez to force Enron to accept or reject the agreement that has kept the company's name on the ballpark and virtually all related materials since it opened. Enron almost certainly couldn't make another payment on the 30-year, $100 million contract, so it would have to relinquish the Enron Field name and allow the Astros to sell the rights to another bidder."
