HOUSTON—The Houston Astros don’t want the name “Enron Field” atop their 2-year-old ballpark.

“Thousands of people who have been adversely affected by the Enron collapse are being reminded on a daily basis of this continuing tragedy,” attorneys for Astros owner Drayton McLane wrote in a motion filed Tuesday with the New York court overseeing Enron’s bankruptcy.

The team wants the bankruptcy court to force Enron to make a decision on whether to honor the 30-year, $100 million naming rights agreement signed in 1999.

A new name being proposed for the ballpark is “We Suck Slightly Less Than Enron Field”.
